True. I hope he got to the bike only section before the cars came through.

Lucky lucky. At least he's coherant enough to chat shortly afterwards. Sucks to hear it happened, but glad to hear of the great (all things considered) outcome.

Thanks. I didn't know what benefit he'd get out of this. It should, hopefully, help him with lower level sponsors if he decides to race next year though. "Top US finisher" has got to award him some street cred.
