you are right steve, that is the answer! anyone who does not know or care about us we should wish bad upon.. real class act. I don't give a **** who it is, the way I see it is that anyone who is in that situation is NOT fair game for bashing. so why not give it a rest!!!!!!!!!

Pack I apologize for offending you! I was not bashing the Guy; it was only an observation from the facts. Again Sorry!

Sounds like he lost it going through some speedy dry. Horrible accident. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

Speedy recovery Jason.

He'll be lucky if he lives much less walk again after a broken spine and two broken feet.

I have to agree. I do not wish a accident like this on ANYONE!!! It does not matter that he is a arogent jerk, no one should have to go through what he is not. Remember Earnhart was not the nicest guy on the track either. A crash in a car that we have no idea about does not mean he is a bad car driver. I always thought he was quite good at the car thing. He has a number of wins under his belt. The boats was a mistake for him and it would seem that he figured that out quick and stopped after one race. I hope he lives through this and can even do anything in the future let alone race again.

Jon

Do I like the guy, (after meeting, & talking to him) or agree with him no. I hope he makes a full recovery from this. No one here, or anywhere has the right to comment on his abilities to be in a race car or boat. The Infiniti series he was racing in is VERY dangerous, takes guys with limited experience running 180MPH they need to slow the class down it's not the first problem it's had. A racer needs to know his limitations, but so should the sanctioning body !!!

Speedy Recovery.

It's always sad to hear of a fellow racer getting hurt whatever his abilities may be!! I hope he gets through it alright.

Anyway my bro is the crew chief and engineer for Elisao Salazar of A.J. Foyt's team anybody heard any of the testing results???
