Shining a flashlight in his eye and asking him if he's OK isn't enough after that get off.

I'm sure it will be the topic of discussion elsewhere.
The 6D Helmets FB page stated that Mike LaRocco reported to them that Zach had passed the SCAT 9 concussion test after both falls and that he was sore but OK.

They have to use the bike he qualified on, switching bikes will get you D/Q'd.
That rule applies in amateur racing as well.

Remeber when JS7 crashed at Daytona and they helped him back on teh bike when he was obviously knocked silly?

What a joke.
they're fucking moron's who think they are part of the race. x rays? why bother? pick him up like a sack of potato's and run around with him you don't need to worry about stabilizing people who've just been subjected to a high impact trauma. they are in a word inept and really do behave as if they are an active part of the competition. dipshits.

Have fun!
and fun it was. so glad I picked Dallas. that stadium is built for a big show and it did not disappoint. clean bathrooms, all things considered food wasn't ridiculously priced. traffic post race seemed fairly well coordinated. the place looked to be 3/4 full. Diana Dahlgren on the big TV, I
could look at that girl all day long, what a babe.

the track layout was really cool how they went from turn one into a straight which would not in that order all subsequent times around. they used the berm of the outside of turn one as a jump when they came back on that part of the track. pretty cool. Windham retired because he is afraid of getting hurt, he keeps that stuff up with his xfer jumps he'll still get his chance.

quit while your ahead not the brightest move my god talk about "when somebody say's hey watch this" it's a fucking accident waiting to happen and given it's into a semi dark corner of the track why bother most people can't see it anyway.

they did a tribute on the big screen to the ATV freestyler who was killed and the Navy Seal sniper and the other guy who was killed. nice touch. very well run show for the most part.

Good race for the top three guys last night! Thought Dungey was going to get Milsaps, might have if there was more laps...but that doesn't count. Stewart...bummer, thought he really had a chance to get on the podium. Reed's going to hurt himself again trying to keep up with those guys!

Can't believe Bell walked away from that first crash. My first reaction was that his season was done Then he crashed heavy again...he'll learn, or he'll die trying! Wilson ran fairly good, made a few mistakes...be better next week if Musquin can get a good start and run with him. Hann ran good but his tactics of taking everyone out on every pass will come back and haunt him.

Can't wait until next week!

Neither are the asterisk people by the looks of their ham handed treatment of people with possible head and spinal injuries.

Show a MD that crash vid and he'd insist on a C spine immobilization and a battery of tests at an ER, not a ride on the gate of a Rhino to the pits and an eyeballing by the on staff doc to rubber stamp the kid back to the fight.

That kid is damn lucky he landed on the track, and in a boat or on a truck.

I thought he was going to be paralyzed or killed, that was scary.

I think the truck would've felt better, that had to of hurt landing on hard packed dirt on top of concrete I was sure that was the end of his season!

So you actually know enough about this to speak for MD's everywhere?

I am sure you are right that many DR's in doc-in-the-box clinics everywhere would have this opinion, but that is not where this happened. This is a professional sport, and the professionals make their own decisions. If they pass the concussion exam, and by all reports he did, than it is his decision to return to the track. Whether the Sunday morning DR's are happy about it or not.
