Default Shooter Shoot Out Boat Crash

I saw the 24 HTM crash today at LOTO, does anyone know anything about the driver or exactly what happened? It looked bad and the boat sunk in a matter of seconds. We never heard anything much about it today. Just couious. Hope he doing well.

I think that was yesterday that he crashed, they replayed it on TV today. Anouncer said he is walking around in the pits. After he was ejected the Boat went airborn again during the crash and went over him unstead of crushing him. They showed it in slow motion.

Very blessed man

It was just too rough for smaller boats.


Was quite an experience for me. The water did not look very bad. The boat would launch into the air without warning. Very strange conditions. Normally you can see rollers etc. and prepare for it.

They have the driver on the radio now. He had just viewed tape of the wreck for the first time. Sorry, it was the anouncer that mentioned the life jacket. The driver delined to go on the air. Still nice he could look at the tape
