WOW that was nuts!! Who the hell races when you can't see the front of your car??? WHAT A BUNCH OF TOOLS! I can't believe you wouldn't stop the race for conditions that bad. I guess that was the end of the race for that day! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

I saw this very recently on another site...

Not an open track event... but a full blown RACE.

They got caught out on race slicks by a SUDDEN and VERY Nasty cloud burst!!!

It would appear there was less than sufficient communication to the drivers and crew chiefs with regard to the severity of the down pour.... and the drivers drove right into the bad part of the track WAY TOO HOT!!!

Very sad seeing all that high dollar equipment totally "TORE UP"!!!

But it is very good that the injuries were pretty minor...

And that "safety dude" is lucky to be alive!!!
