    Ouch indeed, the car held up pretty well though, it must be - quite beefy.

    As we were crashing, all I was thinking about was when this was gonna stop. We were in the air for a while, and I was praying to god that this wasn’t it. I was afraid that JT or I wasn’t going to make it. It was scary because I never had thought I had a chance of dying until this moment. It was my first major crash and I didn’t know what to do. Do I relax and take it or do I tense up? All of these thoughts were going through my head. I just wanted it to stop. It seemed like we were crashing forever.
    The Herbst Helicopter landed (after flying sideways over Brett to warn him) and they immediately helped on flagging cars down. We put a fire extinguisher in the middle of the course and used our red triangles. We pushed the alert on the Racing Trax but had no idea if it was going to work or not.

    A lot of cars made it safely through, except for the #63 of Johnny Angal. If it weren’t for his quick reflexes and superb driving abilities, he would have directly T-Boned (no pun intended) the cab of the 91. He did nail the read of the truck, breaking the right front of his truck, but luckily they weren’t harmed.
