Are you seriously gonna try to argue this point? I would rather wreck at the track any day of the week than on the street. Fact is there is no cagers on the track, most riders have some idea of what they are doing. Everyone is being flagged so they know to watch out for you ahead. And it wont take more than a few mins for the Ambo to reach you.

RIP to the rider, sad to hear.

Seriously who cares? Getting on a bike is fing dangerous. At the track or on the street you can DIE. If you don't like it don't ride. Arguing the level of danger is stupid and reeeeediculous. Like you would be more dead on the street rather the track. GEEEZ!


RIP.

That is sad and rip to the rider. I agree he at least died doing something that gave him enjoyment. That is alot better than dying with dirty diapers in a retirement home. We all die.

hmm.. i don't know man. would you rather die at a young age (say 30 to 40) doing something you love or live a longer uneventful life?

I wasn't arguing where to wreck at. BOTH can be just as dangerous.

let's not forget the few that have died at oak hill raceway in the past year as well. doesn't matter which track or which street you ride on.....the possibility of death and carnage will always be there when you are riding at your limits or beyond them.

RIP to the fellow rider.

I can believe you asked me that. Don't you know who I am or anything about me? Besides I know where I am going when I die. Life is just a vapor anyway. LIVE IT!

Someone died at OHR in the past year? Who was that?

When I said "3 in the past 10 years", that includes the 2 that died a couple years ago... and 1 about 8 years ago (at TWS (Texas World Speedway)).

I don't know of any more.

It's really not Chris, he's good people, he posted what he knew- but some of the grandstanding done by other folks (not Chris) was pretty demeaning (IMHO) to the folks who really did the legwork and were the actual manipulators of the "event".

Obviously, an event where a racer or track day participant is killed, or is paralyzed/ seriously injured, it strikes a cord to the "community". I hate to hear of these types of incidents because it's a reminder that it can happen to anyone, despite the precautions that are taken.

I deal with death on a pretty regular basis, and have for a very long time now- and will for a long time to come (since I won't be able to retire until I'm 90 or something...). Seeing death in the "normal" way like car accidents or similar situations is something that doesn't phase me in the least any more, and hasn't for some time. Death within my hobby or past-time however, is a bit more blatant and tough to accept.

Different situations, same results... strange how they affect people differently.

Anyway, moving along...
