    That track is a man-eater-upper.

    Canadian sprint driver Travis Rutz got hurt bad there over a year ago.

    Hes still nowhere near 100%

    Thoughts and prayers

        This is the USAC Sumar Classic for Silver Crown cars at the THAT 1/2 mile dirt track. Prayers go out to Shane at this time.

                His car cartwheeled and impacted the retaining wall, resulting in a catastrophic collapse of the car's roll cage.
                I really don't like that. A design issue? Manufacturing flaw? Old car? I would hope USAC is taking a close look at that thing to make sure it's not something that might be an issue with their other cars.

                  If I'm not mistaken it's been a long time since someone was badly hurt in a Silver Crown car.

                        I heard Shane's stable, but critical. Hoping for the best.

                        EDIT: I see someone else already posted this. Sorry.

                          Per wikipedia

                          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shane_Hmiel

                          Shane Hmiel was involved in an accident on October 9th in A Dirt Late Model where the roll cage caved in, he has been airlifted to hospital and the situation is described as grave.

                          I hope the reports of stable but critical are correct. Still a bad situation, but they seem more hopeful.

                            So was it a Late Model or a Silver Crown?
