I have raced at a lot of tracks over the years. I can not put blame on the personnel at this track. They are the very best I have ever seen. They are meticulous and extremely professional from start to finish.

I mean that from the heart, the best I have ever seen.


Tom you race there so you would know , it was observation I made on the size of the object... Sorry if I offended you with my comment , but I thought it would have been hard to miss is all..


HAVE THEY CALLED US YET ? THEY HAVE!!!

Guy I bought my car from took a piece of connecting rod to the eye after a car kicked the rods in the burnout and a spinning tire caught it and launched it! He had multiple surgeries but has made a full recovery. Could have been bad.

Earlier this year I was behind but off to the side probably 50' behind the water box. Something came flying at me and hit the chain link fence next to me. I grabbed it and it was a warm ball bearing probably 3/8". Didn't look familiar so I walked over to the car and his pro charger had exploded. It looked like the bottom of the hood was shot with a shotgun!

No offense taken bud. Just wanted everyone to know I wasn't blaming the track or the people that work there with these posts.

Our sport is dangerous. We gotta be aware of everything going on around us when we are at the track. Bad things can happen.

While sitting in the water for a time run this weekend, I watched a ball peen hammer fall out from under the car in front of me, as it launched. Fortunately, it did not get under his tire. That could have been really bad. It bounced and slid half way to the 60 ft marker.

It's just not the burnout box, once at a team race after a time hit I was on the return road and out of the race in front of me comes a huge chunk of steel . Landing right in front of me, 10" cold chisel. I stop and pick it up as it went under the car and put a hole in one brand new Goodyear slick .... I tracked down the owner (it was his dads who just pasted away 8 months before ) Debris any where is dangers , if you see it deal with it.... Like the title of this thread.... BE CAREFUL OUT THERE.....
