AUSTIN, Texas – Flat Earther “Mad” Mike Hughes was skeptical that a FIA WEC race was actually taking place at COTA this weekend despite news reports, pictures, and videos from the weekend being published. “There’s no fans there, no way!” said Mad Mike, “So I am going to take a look for myself. If a race runs in Texas, but nobody is there to see it, did it actually happen? Is anyone of this happening?” Hughes then climbed into his homemade rocket to get a birds-eye view of the circuit and launched.
After climbing to 5,000 feet, Hughes’ rocket plummeted back to Earth and crashed, killing him instantly.
