Great to hear you guys weren't hurt more seriously. Yikes.

Helmet broke? Jacket came unzipped? Sounds like a serious whack.

Just for future reference, what kind of helmet/jacket do you have?

It was a Bell Helmet and Lifeline Jacket- I think it did its job the best it could have in the circumstances at hand....

Glad to here you are both ok.Nobody said it was going to be easy but it sounds like you found the limit on your trim switch.Rest up so you can race in Daytona.See you there and say hello to Andy.

P.S. It was suposed to be a shake-down race for you not shake out!

Hey Typhoon- why wasn't you there- I thought we were having the dog pound- I will see you in Daytona... The wind did not help at all- but we all know that turn is the worse one on that course.

My friend was taking pictures at St Cloud. He's going thru them - says he has over 100 shots. He just sent some to me, including these that you may be interested in: (He didn't have any running shots, just the pit area close ups)

OffshoreAddiction being taken to get looked at by the medics:
