I'll have to think about this and compile a list. I'll get back to this thread later.

This is not an all inclusive list mainly because I didn't list all the tracks I've raced at over the years, and I didn't list any track that wasn't a CCRC/CMRA or TMGP venue, but here's a first cut:

OHR - 5
TWS (Texas World Speedway) - 3
MSRC - 1
Wheels Raceway - 1
HMRC - 0
MSRH - 0
No Problem Raceway - 0
Monterrey - 0
Austin Aquafest - 0

Denton - 2
Katy - 1
Hitchcock (before it was GSS) - 1

Hmmm. I feel like I've forgotten something...

That OH track map leaves something to be desired pictorially. Here's a better picture, IMO:

Not track crashes like you guys, but I wanted to post a spiffy map too.
My last 2 crashes. Totalled an FZR600 and a Mladin GSXR1000.
Both on Briarcrest Dr.
The "A" on the map is my work...needless to say, I take a different route to work now. crashes

No racing yet and only about 7 or 8 trackdays but...

MSRH: 2 (CW turns 1 & 2)
TWS (Texas World Speedway): 0
GSS: 0

Had a few run-offs and also a close call in GSS that resulted in a run-off, but really only 1 crash so far on the track surface. The second crash was from a run-off and tapping the front brake in the grass outside of turn 2 at MSRH.

70+ trackdays for me and 3 half seasons of racing for me.

TWS (Texas World Speedway) = 1

I hate that my only crash was a racer coming underneath me between T5 and T6 and he missed a downshift and did something funny (his words, not mine) and he found himself highsiding into my path and ran him over just as he landed from the highside.
