Mike put it up on fb during the races. What a horrible thing to happen for what is the last event of the season. RIP

Coming off the banking onto the front straight/tri-oval towards start finish can be scary. The speeds are just so high, and the G forces can really push a bike around. If you have a bad line you WILL end up going towards the wall. And the differing lines of people staying low and being forced wide versus staying high and then diving down the wall....can be pretty scary. And this happened during the Team Hammer race school.

Just a bad situation. Sad for all around.

RIP racers.
