Glad you are relatively OK, Martinez. When your tires start sliding you have to be extra diligent in reducing lean angle while adding throttle at corner exit. Otherwise.... well... you know.

I over rode my tires once....it bucked me just like that bc I chopped the throttle too much. Dirt has taught me to stay in the gas a little longer.

Glad you're ok dude.

Man I passed by the wreckage after the red flag. I saw you on the floor with your arms in the air and you weren't moving. I felt really bad. I'm glad you're doing alright man.

Glad you came through that. I was working T7 and heard it, checked my my corner and then turned around and looked torward 6 and saw the end of it. I was within a second of calling it when the T6 CW called it. Then I saw Floyd turn around and head back to you.

Man, nasty one - glad your injuries weren't any worse.

When your foot heals up, give Texas Tornado Boot Camp a try! I'd never ridden dirt before, nothing like it for getting comfortable with sliding (at loooooowwwww speeds).
