Very sad....I have no words to say but my deepest condsolences to their families and friends.

My question is...did rescue boats respond to Victory boat quickly? The video didnt show that they repsonded????

I say prayers for these 2 greatest racers.

Thats what i thought, im not sure. Tragic news. Read an article that said on-lookers said it took them 9 minutes to get 1 out and 20 to get the other. Sucks either way. RIP

Prayers go out to the Family and Friends from everyone at Active Thunder.

Is it 100% certain the footage above is the actual in-boat footage from this accident; and not a previous flip?

That's what I was wondering. The flip they showed early on the clip was not of the current boat.

I had a friend translate it, the actual footage is correct of them side by side, that was being simulcast. the previous flip (out of boat)showed with the other driver was showing the accident that took his life. condolences to the families.
