No...that is Piss Poor Tower management...Car people don't care about Bike People...
Good places have binoculars...and use them, checking the track constantly.

That is so true Marty . One I the biggest reasons I love the AMRA . Absolutely the best track prep , I have ever seen .
This circumstance is why I hate running with cars .
This car was warned 3 times .he didn't withdraw until qualifying .3 hrs later .
The starting line was shut down 3-4 times and sprayed with alcohol. Then re prepped .never once did they go down track .

Damn, that was close...
Nice recovery-
The old LACR track, now closed, where I learned to race had a gravel company next to the track and lots of wind that would blow fine sand on the big end. Know a Busa who went down and several cars who spun out down there. I got a little squirrelly a couple times, and once the starter even warned me to be careful down there.
As said, all about prep and proper track management.

        Yep . couple years ago when I exploded my primary  right after the 60 ft.   Me and my crew  were cleaning  up all the busted chain links , rollers  , aluminum .  The starter had 2 cars staged  .   They were pissed because we were  "in the way " 
           really .....   local low budget track .......  Glad you are ok   stroker

Great to see that you kept the rubber side down Jim and only had the delamination of a boot sole. Wow!

Glad it worked out OK. On the other hand that burst of smoke indicates you went thru the traps "full on"  :up:  and you had enough power at that speed to actually spin hard enough to smoke the tire big time.  :up: :up:

I liked the commercial better. Haha. Naw, J/K. That was exciting just to watch, let alone riding it out and winning.
