Kenny Delco's crash
Did anyone see Kenny Delco's crash last night at Denver? Any idea what happened? Something locked up? something broke? Saw some smoke around the tires then turned left straight into the wall. Good he is ok and will be at Sonoma with the backup car.

They said today on the show that he said the air for the chutes wasn't turned on and he locked up the brakes trying to get it stopped.

Looked like chute bags opened but there was no air to launch them. Definitely locked up the brakes but amazing how quick it turned on him

maybe the lamb/carbon fiber brakes? I heard they are just vicious if you get on them too hard?

Looked to me that the motor let go..you see a small flame in the right front wheel opening, then it went left quickly.

I've seen Greg Anderson make his front rotors glow red.

Unless the "air guy" is a family member, somebody got fired!
