Scott, Dylan did all he could do, and he was never at fault imo.

It happens and we can joke about it now that everyone is ok. Blame doesn't matter at this point we race to win. I like Salems track but it's needs immediate improvements before someone gets hurt. If not a driver a spectator. There needs to be more wall showing, this year alone atleast 5-6 cars have met there demise at this race track, it's hard to grow a series when your car count is constantly fixing cars. I had enough help to get my car back to the track after my incident but some guys have had season enders on that wall. There needed to be more inforcment of the rough driving rules that said wouldn't be tolerated in the drivers meeting, instead of saying we will talk to them they needed another drivers meeting going into detail after the heats. In the heat the two cars on the front row were beating wheels during the parade lap.. Should be zero tolarence on anything that would jeopardize anyone's safety. We let the track makes those calls, if the series is the track crew as well that's their responsibility. I don't want to see anyone get hurt, and with the biggest count they have had that's a lot of cars on that track.

Thanks Andy I am just thankful that you are ok. Brians crash pretty much ended his openwheel racing. It even busted the block. I appreciate the help that you have given to use since we met at Chandler. We have run 3 different sanction bodies this season (MMSA, PowerI and BAM) and everyone in all 3 divisions have been outstanding to run with and really made us a newbies feel really welcome. What alot of people outside of the stands dont get to see is that there are alot of friendships made and a very good bond in the racing family. Thanks again and we can hardly wait til Saturday and Sunday.

It also broke my engine,
I had 4 hours of tig welding to do when I awoke. Broke the mounts off the engine, minor frame damage, shocks front axle. A bunch of guys showed up that morning and we pulled of a miracle.

I talked to him this morning and he says he is going to step away a couple weeks to decide what he is going to do. Right now he is favoring stepping away due to the fact if he gets hurt bad he has a business to run. I will keep you posted. Thanks again

I can understand that, the older I get the harder those are to get over.
