2nd lap on the 89 in the first moto my start was ok but not great and there were 2 guys in front of me that were all over the track and riding sketchy (not ACR regulars), I attempted to rail around the outside of a berm to pass both of them but sketchy #1 bobbled sending sketchy#2 into my front wheel sending me over the bars while I was 3rd gear pinned and I hit the ground hard, my bike landed on top of me and I think sketchy #2's bike as well.
I couldn't move and beside having the wind knocked out of me there were bikes on top of me. Sketchy pulled his bike off of me but stood there asking me if I was ok while my bike was revving in gear but luckily not ripping me apart with the spinning wheel.
Ambulance came on the track to pick me up as I laid motionless for awhile so they did the full body check before loading me up for the long bumpy ride to the parking lot(which hurt as much as the get off), Although I was sore with a bruised hip and ribs (maybe cracked) I declined the ride to the hospital and choose to tough out the rest of the day under the popup, my brother drove down with me so he had his races and thought it best to give it some time.

We'll see how I feel in the morning....
major suckage! hope you mend up quick. glad to be able to say...sounds like it could have been a lot worse.
