Congrats to Bruce Wilson on his first race win in this one. Video is from in my car... Note there's a skip in the DV tape due to the impact.

Did the 13 just get loose and come across your bumper?

We watched the video in impound together and he said something to the effect of "yeah I turned in on you". I assume he just didn't realize i was there, couldn't get any farther to the right. It suprised me, I assumed he'd give me room...

Sh!t happens in racing. Its a bit discouraging but you move on and hope to avoid this in the future.

To get that loose there, I'd expect some compliance issues....

Please tell me he's a new guy and needs to buy more mirrors, then practice looking in them. [Confused]

Sucks to see that Geoff! How much damage to your car?

And +1 to what Greg said.

Yeah, it is exactly what he said it was. "I turned in on you".

Big oops.

Damage wise I was actually very surprised how little there was. The LF wheel got chewed up but hopefully its still straight and just cosmetic. Flat spotted the tires coming to a sliding stop. The LF fender got bent more but was already not pretty. the bumper got more trashed but can probably be sanded and repainted. So all things considers not too bad. I just need to pull it all apart and hope the nose supports aren't bent. Oh yes, and it was pushing badly after that so hopefully that is just the alignment being off and not a bent suspension piece.
