If he was going 60, that could present another problem for him. I understood they were under full-track yellow flag caution and that track had a 25 mph limit for travel under cautions.
If that is true, I stand corrected. I don't follow Sprint Cars much (there isn't much TV coverage & Ascot closed over 20 years ago) & was just guessing at the speed, from other forms of the sport. Thanks for pointing that out, Danno. From what I do know about Sprints is, they go better than they stop. They have no clutch or conventional transmission. Just an in & out box. If you lock up the rear wheels, the engine stops.
