All,
I was filming yesterday (Summit Point, West Virginia, Main Course) at the CCS races ...

BIG wreck in T1 right in front of me ...

It was an incredible race; really fun to watch.

I didn't race, was just filming, so bear with me if I don't get the facts all correct. Here's how I remember it:

- It was Race 1 (Formula 40); the over 40 guys. There were Amateur and Expert out on the track together.

- The "pack" just never seemed to break up ... those guys were SERIOUS about winning and kept it close racing ... that's when "it" happened ...

- Coming into turn 1, the guy LEADING the Expert group (I don't know his name or number) and the guy LEADING the Amateur group (#587, Ross Wellwood, who was pitted near where I was camping) collided ...

- Everybody is OK ...

Glad they're ok.

Are those 250's they're racing? Bikes are kinda odd looking.

Looks like both bikes are SV650's.

That being said, it looks like the AM rider went in too hot and collected the rider in front of him.

Glad everybodys ok and I'm pissed that I was not there (I race the F40 class) to play.......FUGGIN broken clavicle.:hammer
