Scotty's quote of Danny's above is accurate. The suburban was part of LAMEco's chase crew. Our rider Patrick Ditson stopped & talked to Jimmy about 5 miles before the accident. Jimmy told Patrick that he would shadow him in. Patrick said that he seemed pretty tired. Jimmy followed Patrick for awhile but then Patrick lost him. Patrick is pretty fast & I would imagine that Jimmy couldn't keep up with him. The ground in front of the vado was washed out & it was a pretty good hump to get over it. I can easily understand why he didn't get over it. It was totally inexcusable that the rock crawler buggy was that close. He had plenty of room to go around. Danny didn't mention that Bud Feldkamp was with him. He was worried about Buddy Jr. Buddy was the Doctor that had come up on the accident and had tried to save Jimmy. When Danny said he got there in 10 minutes he wasn't kidding. Jimmy(the suburban) has some pretty trick suspension. However Danny needs to learn to listen. When Bud Feldkamp suggests that you're running trophy truck speeds you need to slow down.
I talked to Marty the day we left Cabo. The current plan for next year is to let the really fast guys on bikes go first, then the cars And trucks and finally the rest of the bikes. Their desire is to increase the vintage and motorcycle numbers in this event. They realize that the only significant growth must come from the bikes.
We're all hurting right now and feel strongly for Jimmy and his wife and family. Jimmy was living the dream, the one we all aspire to. I pray that he is getting some tips now From Steve McQueen and Bud Ekins. God Bless you Jimmy.
