Checked out One Lap at our local track here in Wisconsin...

I was excited to finally see a V running but only saw one lap. The driver walked away with only a scratch. Story is, he entered turn 12 "a bit" too hot and tried to make the turn anyway. He claimed "no brakes" and ended up rolling it and came to a rest on the other side of the wall.

Wow, that's pretty rough. Not good to end up on the wrong side of the wall.

Steve's is white, and from Jersey.
Sucks to go all that way and total your car.

Cleveland Pick-a-part has a truck on its way.



Cool event. There's lots of big money people at that event. Hopefully it isn't an average guy making a big payment.

Yeah that would suck if it's his D.D. normal insurance wouldn't cover that :(

Rookie mistake, you never want to go off the track sideways. Those pictures are hard to look at. Glad he wasn't hurt worse....

Looks like he missed the fence so I'm guessing it's not Urb.
