It's official....

Tony has the worst luck of anyone I know!! I've still got about the same repair to do myself, but mine is cumulative from the last couple of years.

Is this an annual repair? [rolling on floor laughin] [rolling on floor laughin]

I think you might need a new wheel. Either that, or a sh!t load of JB weld. Have fun.

This may have been asked somewhere else, but was that a failure of the wheel that caused the wreck, or did the wreck cause the wheel failure?

No, my renter wishes that was true, I wish that was true, the armco under the bridge at Limerock wishes that was true, but the wheel broke on impact.

I am replacing them as they are old, and there is no way I can match that rusty sheen.......

Last lap of the session, with a visiting renter from the west and his first day at Limerock. He was getting pretty fast and got into Westbend a little hot, thought he was going off track on exit and lifted just a little too much.

Tank slapper ensues but finally spin to the right and hit the inside armco at about 75 mph Drivers side front.

I was "coaching"..... not too well apparently. No one was hurt but the car.

The NASA crew and LRP safety workers were there in about 10 seconds, Thanks you guys!

Tony, as I look at the pictures all I can say is, that's one hell of a driveway project.

I will check the alignment next weekend since I'm in texas this week.

Tony:
Is that the same car (and front clip) you wadded up at Mid Ohio at the '07 NASA Nationals?
