The 14-year-old Santa Rosa boy killed at Marysville Raceway Park a week ago is being remembered as the track reopens Sunday night.

Marcus Johnson was killed along with a 68-year-old Grass Valley man when a car driven by the boy's 17-year-old cousin flew off the track during warm-ups.

The accident is being blamed on mechanical failure. Track officials say the raceway is safe for spectators.
