That reminds me of Candlestick Park.

Anybody else hear the Dukes of Hazard theme song in their head when they saw that pic?

Holy Sh*t, Mako!.... :o You always get the shot, don't you! BTW, NASA always seemed to have kind of a Dukes of Hazard feel to me anyways.

It wasn't? My mistake. I thought it was a NASA race this weekend.

Well does look like he's trying pretty hard to launch himself skyward...

Looks like that's at the exit of T8? Most people run out of room at the exit of T9, do you know what caused this?

Dropped a wheel off the pavement going into 9

One has a choice to turn and risk flipping in the dirt or going straight and risking the berm. He got the berm, the wall and the flip ... but was out of the car the moment it came to a stop. Rescue and EMT were there within seconds.

This fellow tried turning and made it OK
