Exclamation OPRT Track Day Crash

Kinda figured it would be up here already but maybe not enough people are in /r/trackdays on Reddit.

Looks like there was a muffler in the middle of the track and the first two riders slowed and the next did not.

HOLY ! I can't believe he didn't go down after that bike came crashing down on the left hand and the other rider paused for a kiss mid session.

I think you're not supposed to cut throttle if there's a standing or waiving yellow. The yellow means the rider should look out and be careful. A pipe in the middle of a straight would warrant a waiving yellow because you can see and avoid it easily.

I see where it says "it's blind". Must have been a close call. Maybe they should have thrown a red. Who knows....

Hope those poor guys are ok.
