In loving memory of Natalie Krohn

A little over a week ago, tragedy struck the community. Natalie Krohn was enjoying her time with a friend near her family’s farm just north of Slayton when very suddenly, her life was snatched away as a result of a ATV accident at the young age of nine. The Krohn family, along with the community of Slayton, was in deep shock for the entire week of Natalie’s passing.

Not only was Slayton saddened by this tragic death, but so was the racing world. Natalie’s father, Jason Krohn,  is known all over the U.S. for his dirt track success in the United States Modified Touring Series, especially in 2007 when he won the national championship.

Brandon Davis, CEO of Swan Energy, Inc., was sitting in his office on the morning he found out about the accident waiting to do a conference call with his marketing team for the driver that Swan Energy, Inc. sponsors. That driver is NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver David Stremme. Swan Energy, Inc. also sponsors Rodney Sanders, a driver in the USMTS with Jason Krohn and coincidently Samantha’s (Natalie’s sister) boyfriend. When Sanders found out about the accident, he gave Davis a call just before he did the conference call.
