Steering wheel safety


Recommended Posts

I had planned on attending the driver's meeting this weekend to mention this important reminder, but I missed it.

If you folks have a quick disconnect steering wheel, please make absolutely sure it is locked in place. An official at the Petaluma dirt track was recently killed when the steering wheel came off of a sprint car. This poor kid will remember that night for a long time.

Indeed! I had one come off in practice exiting T11 at Thunderhill. Just plain luck I was able to run out straight and unharmed in the dirt. I will be trying to tear it off each time I get on the track to make sure it is on from now on!
