Aircraft damage: Substantial
Location:Smoky Mountain Speedway, TN -   United States of America
Phase: Landing
Departure airport:Centralia, IL (KENL)
Destination airport:Maryville, TN
Investigating agency: NTSB
According to the pilot, he was attempting to land at a private airstrip. As the pilot flared to land, the airplane impacted the runway and bounced. After the airplane touched down the second time, it struck a divot and bounced off the runway surface again. The pilot realized that he was nearing the end of the runway, and he applied takeoff power to initiate a go-around. However, during the initial climb, the propeller made contact with a fence, and the airplane nosed over, resulting in substantial damage to the wings and empennage. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilot’s inadequate recovery from a bounced landing and his subsequent delayed decision to perform a go-around, which resulted in the airplane’s failure to clear obstacles.
