Hope WERA is better today than 30 years ago.

Story:

Back in my 20's (yeah 30+ years back) raced AAMRR for 2 years. Moderately good results in the novice mod-prod division. NH Speedway- known as Bryar back then- and Bridgehampton- known as nothing now.

Looking for more race weekends I went to a WERA race at the Bridge.

First race keeping the leaders in sight, heavy braking before the right hander just before the back straight. No flags, no warning- puddle of oil on the track. I think I bounced when I hit the ground. Holee chit that hurt.

P.S. Years ago I read something pretty funny in Cycle magazine (remember that?) "have you ever crashed so hard that you couldn't pick your nose for a week?" That was me.
