Yea the track was in really good shape. Mark Smith's fastest lap of the A-main was on lap 13 and was 0.4 seconds off the one lap track record for 360 sprint cars. So the track was fast but it always is.

Here is a little bit more information as of Monday night. The procedure to treat Duane's head injury was completed and if things remain stable, surgery will be performed on Tuesday to repair his broken arm and leg.

I wasn't aware of that.

Thanks for posting.

Hopefully both drivers will be OK!

Selinsgrove Speedway is posting updates as they are obtained from the families of Duane and Jamie on their website. Please keep in mind that updating others outside their family unit is not necessarily at the forefront for people involved in a situation like this so updates may or may not be regular. Please respect and understand their wishes and privacy as they deal with the issues at hand.
My OPINIONS are just that and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of anyone or any track I am associated with!
