Night to honor Titus Mofield
There are plans to honor the late Titus Mofield at the Buffalo Valley Dragway.
Mofield, 18, a mechanical enthusiast, died from injuries sustained in an October 5 motorcycle accident in Trousdale County.
Carthage resident, Jayden Moyer, called Mofield more than a best friend, rather a “brother”.
Moyer said Mofield’s friends have organized “a dedication night at the Buffalo Valley Dragway” for Saturday, October 15.
Organizers are encouraging Mofield’s friends and supporters of the dragway to come out in honor of the accident victim.
“We want people to come out to see how great of a young man he really was,” commented Moyer.
A special logo has been made to honor Mofield and a donation bucket will be set up at the dragway, Moyer said.
