Many are wondering how a kid could get behind the wheel alone, but sheriff's deputies say this is not a criminal investigation
Judge Cochran, Marion County Sheriff's Office: "as apart of our investigation we've determined that no crime has happened there's no statute to the best of our knowledge that prevents a 15-year-old from driving a vehicle on private property at a private business.
We spoke to two people at the track but they said no one who works there was available to speak.
