Holy S&*t what a crazy wreck and now red flag. John H looks like he downshifted or something weird and locked up in front row and sent guy behind him over in to other row.

Crazy start to a national championship race.

Be thankful we haven't had one of thoses.

 

Seperately some real nice speedcast coverage and announcing. NASA should be watching and learning as a definite step up in quality.

Wow guys were pissed. Look like several easy future NASA recruits. Typical SCCA bs as he described stuff

 

If you were ever on the track with that guy you would think what he said was really funny. Sounded like he was talking about himself!!

I'm extremely pleased to say that we did BOTH standing starts and flying starts at Nationals without incident. Our American Iron racers did an awesome job, and we stressed that importance every driver's meeting. Kudos to you guys & gal!

i am hearing the guy broke a half shaft on the start. maybe that is not accurate, but it could explain a lot.

Rob,

That is what the Phoenix camp said, but after watching the video I think the 2-3 shift was a 2-1 shift....

 

I saw a lot of tire smoke, prolly something that you would not see if you broke a half shaft.

Maybe the half shaft broke after the shift from 2 to 1 , instead of 2 to 3

Second guessing completely as this all happended so quick but guy should have gone outside instead of inside when the car in front throw out anchor. Also shouldn't have thrown the car so hard and far inside as o hit other lane who had nowhere to go.

Now of course all this happened in 1/2 a second at most but general rule is if it happens quick go outside away from other cars.
