In one of the worst racing tragedies in our history, Jesse Hockett was electrocuted in his Trailer at a young age, He was on his way to end up in the Hall of Fame with all the bigs, he was that good. He still should be there. His wing/non wing abilities remind me of a few hall of famers that were awesome themselves. Jesse came on so fast that many had to see him to believe it. He left us way too soon. I was lucky to get to see him.

Jesse "The Rocket" Hockett (September 7, 1983 – May 26, 2010) was an American sprint car racer. He made his debut in 1998 and went on to win numerous events in the course of his career. In 2006, he became the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits TNT Midwest Swing Champion. He also competed in the World of Outlaws sprint car tour, having made his debut in the series in 2003.

Hockett was killed by electrocution while using a pair of pliers to fix his trailer's electrical box, and found by his wife, in his shop in Warsaw, Missouri in preparation for several races. He was survived by his wife Tina Marie Church-Hockett, after barely being married three months on February 13, 2010
