they tell all the corner workers to raise the red flags which signals everyone to get off the track so they can clean everything up and you know to be on the look out. there was oil on the track because of how the engine shattered. they allowed everyone back on as soon as the replacement ambulance comes back and everything is cleaned up and safe again.

What happened???

Looks like he was zoned out, forgot to turn and ran into the wall??

There is a ton of turn room there because you're at the straight.

I can't tell what happened.


man, I hate that last zig zag at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I went on track on that into the grass, my first time on that track.

LOL read the OP again... he raised his rear tire by 2psi.. didnt work out well for him because his rear slid out, caught the bike back but was in a nasty tank slapper, tried controlling it and went into the wall.
