I was a slow rabbit myself towing 3-4. Finally after getting lapped I decided to leave them and start running for me lol!

The corner worker in the sweeper leading to the back straight stuck a gopro in the ground. Anyone knows who that is and if he plans on sharing that footage?

I hope he is ok. Happened in front of me. Looked bad...

I was at pit out when the group he was in went by, they were all dicing it pretty hard down the pit on through sugar and spice and I thought to myself "that's not going to end well" and by the time I came around gut check they were in the grass and the red flags were flying by the time I got diamonds edge. It didn't look good at all.

He passed me going into sugar and spice and went wide. I could have passed him, but outside passes were only aloud. I backed off to let him back in. He went full throttle and way left off line at the top of the launch. Grabbed a hand full of front break and endowed. Fuel tank landed 100 feet away from what I heard.

My profile is filled out correctly. I was actually a little upset with the lack of people I saw on the track. It was just open and lonely.

Yeah it was me, I'm fine sort of except i broke my humerus in two different spots and my wrist.

I was reviewing my go pro and i assumed i had brake problems, because i made no attempt to turn in. And i had problems with the brakes in the previous session which i shouldve addressed. AND i was going into that way too hot as CraiggRR said.

sorry for wasting everyones time

Don't worry about our time. We are worried about your health. Things happen on the track. I messed up a couple of turns.
