I'm really sorry to hear that Paradox. Thank goodness you're ok. We'd be bummed too if we lost everything, even if it is replaceable.

MCracing just stopped by my shop and showed me pics of the accident yesterday. His brand new truck was totaled as was the skater and the trailer. To see the condition of the dump style truck that hit them you'd think no one walked away, thankfully he and his wife are ok. The truck hit the port side rear of the skater breaking both 300xs's and blowing it off the trailer putting it half on the guardrail where it traveled about four hundred feet destroying the bottom. The truck proceeded to run over the trailer and destroying it before continuing on into the side of his f250 in pushing it into a barrier wall and totaling it as well.

That sucks,hope you had fresh underwear! I have had some close calls,im glad you didnt get hurt.You get a pat on the back for continuing down after the accident.I lost a tire and rim once on the way to a poker run in Canada,I thought it might be bad luck so we chased down the tire and rim put it back on the trailer and continued to the poker run.My hunch was right the morning of the poker run my brand new dually was stolen from outside the hotel(never Found)thank god for insurance.Could always be worse,keep going f.....It !!
