ROBERT Parker shared a heartbreaking post foreshadowing his horror ATV accident just weeks before his death.
The famous mud racer, 38, tragically died on March 15 while doing what he loved in Harnett County, North Carolina.
He was driving an SUV on Turlington Roach when he suddenly fell and was fatally injured as it rolled on him.
The circumstances of the devastating impact at 4:44 p.m. are still unclear.
Emergency services, including paramedics and firefighters, rushed to the scene but unfortunately were unable to save the father of three.
He is survived by his wife, Capsey, and their three children, Sawyer, Nathan, and Carleigh.
His loving wife, with whom he was 17, said: “Today I lost my best friend and my best father to my children!
“Please pray for me, our children, our family and our friends as we face this impossible task of saying goodbye.”
Fans are now being haunted by one of Robert’s recent uploads to Instagram, which made an eerily reference to “breaking down”.
The respected mud racing enthusiast, who lived in Benson, shared an ominous post from a bare concrete tower.
The images show just a pillar of 24 small windows that invite light into the structure, while various items are scattered on the floor.
A dog can be seen through the lower window, staring at Robert while snapping a few snaps of the strange building.
He coolly captioned the pics: “You can be at the end or at the beginning! #teammomentumracing.”
The dad tagged his son Nathan – who is also an avid mud racer – in the post, hinting they had enjoyed a day together.
Fans of the fearless ATV diver have since paid tribute to Robert in the comments.
The racing world was rocked by his death, with hundreds of people paying their respects on social media.
Battle of the Builds posted on Facebook: “Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the Parker family, friends and Team Momentum Racing.
“Robert Parker, you have inspired countless people in the off-road world. You helped shape this industry and may your legacy live on…
“You were a great father, husband, role model and so much more.”
The post added: “It pains us to see you gone but God has you now. Reserve us a seat up there.”
Meanwhile, Super ATV wrote: “We are heartbroken to hear of the loss of Robert Parker.
