BRASELTON - The Hall County Sheriff's Office has released the name of the motorcycle racer who lost his life in race Saturday at Road Atlanta.

Sheriff's deputy Nicole Bailes identified the victim as 29-year-old Andrew White of Dallas, Georgia.

Bailes said White experienced what's called a false neutral with his motorcycle when he approached turn 15. She said White lost control of his bike and hit a concrete barrier.

White was participating in the WERA Cycle Jam motorcycle race at the Braselton road course.

White was transported to Barrow Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
