Seriuosly dude? Never ever...ever...stop on a hot track. Thats why there are track marshalls and corner workers. Go to hot pit and tell them so they can put the flags out and clear the issue.

I'm fairly certain he's a marshall for TTD.

My first post here got stomped so I will ask a question. If there is a dangerous object on a hot track and or a downed rider need immediate attention shouldn't the corner worker get on the radio, everyone pop flags and slow the track down before venturing onto the track? Or am I just a retentive safety ?

Still feel bad for the deceased and families.

#1 the grid or control will dictate when the track is hot or cold and the give instructions to the corner worker as to his/ her next actions

#2 The answer to your question is basically "yes"

#3 Nobody should be on a hot track other than the riders/ drivers

#4 During our corner worker meetings, I won't speak for the others, specific instructions for these situations is given in written and verbal forms so that everyone understands the program

These are the directives I give my staff at our events, YMMV.

I worked TWS (Texas World Speedway) this past Monday and I had to step onto a hot track on corner #10(Horse shoe) They flagged caution then I was able to run across the track and picked up a piece of metal that was on the far left side of the turn. That could have caused an accident. The riders seemed to appreciate that and showed it by slowing down for me.
