He never saw it coming, which was probably a good thing. Impact speed was likely greater than 60 mph. He made a full cartwheel and landed face down. It was a grim looking scene at first and it was shocking and disturbing to our scorers and other staff that witnessed it. He was unconscious, but came to shortly after, and he was alert and conscious when he was care flighted to the trauma center in Tyler. The last report I heard at the track was that he suffered no broken bones, no lacerations, minimal bruising and that he was awaiting the results of a CAT scan. He was making jokes and stated that he was bothered that his staff shirt had been cut off immediately after the accident (I told him that we were going to bill him for that), and he also said he wanted a chicken salad sandwich. I heard this morning he was doing well and was released from the hospital.

BTW, the impacting rider was very shaken up but was basically okay. This was a racing incident and nothing more.

I do not normally stand at track's edge at Oak Hill. The location has always made me feel extremely vulnerable, so I usually make my way back into the scorer's platform. You'd have to do it know exactly what I mean. That said, as a back-up starter, it's my job sometimes and was from race 9 onwards yesterday.

That was a nasty thing to watch. Thanks for the update. I can't believe he was not hurt worse. I thought for sure it had snapped his legs.

Glad to hear it's just bumps and bruises. Thanks for the update.
