Crash at AMA Daytona Race

At the very end, he zooms in and you can see what is left of that poor bike. From what I've read, the riders were okay.

That was insane. They said the superbikes are hitting 195 at Daytona, so these guys must have been going maybe 165-175?

Really pissed me off speed cutting to nascar truck series qualifying instead of the rest of the race, I know the 200 audience is tiny compared to anything nascar but there should be a rule that no race gets bounced for practice or qualifying sessions, at least say speed is cutting over to nascar when it starts so that I don't have to waste 45 min watching red flag coverage to be cut off when the race starts again, and when I'm waiting for supercross at 730 I have to watch 10 min of post race driver interviews, it seems like the interview the whole field. Speed come on!

That was a crazy finish, Eslick had a nice one too.

yea it was nuts! I was sitting with Cardenas and we were watching it on TV and as they came through the oval we looked up as they crashed! Watched Chuck (Westby's mechanic) jumped the wall and started running!

Was insane!
