Sh¡t happens. I find it ironic that people always say "Well if there's a possibility it needs to be changed". Well there's a possibility not all drivers will return to the pits. Let's just stop racing completely. There are risks involved. Drivers, owners, spectators seem to accept those risks. Let's all move on and look forward to the next race while wishing those involved in the accident at Selinsgrove a full recovery.
It's possible any one of us could be in an accident at any time, are you still going to drive everywhere or is that going to stop you from leaving your house? Well, It's possible....
There are SO MANY things that can happen at a race track at ANY given time and they can happen so fast. When you start to change one thing, Where do you go from there and how do you know when to stop?
This is about RACING in general at EVERY Track and has nothing to do with just one track!!!
I have been involved in racing and working on cars in different class's and roles now for over 20 years, from scrapping mud, to a mechanic, crew chief and even a co-owner, plus working on the tow truck for a few years in there as well. I have seen a lot happen over these years.
The one that will stick with me forever is 2007 when I was working with BK and lost a good friend that night. I almost quit then, but I have stayed involved over these past few years because I know he would not have wanted me to give up and quit.
This year I get to show my appreciation to him with a Memorial Tribute that means so much to me, as well as many others!!!
