Off-road racing legend passed away Friday from serious head injuries suffered in a crash during the Baja 1000 race in Mexico.

According to a statement issued by SCORE International – the racing sanctioning body behind the event – the crash occurred at 4:30 p.m. PT when Caselli was leading in the late stages of the 883.1-mile race.

Caselli’s KTM team, who have now recovered the bike, discovered traces on the machine that indicate he had collided with some small animal, which apparently caused the crash.
