That's unbelievable. I am truly upset with the ordeal. It just shouldn't happen on the track with so many safety precautions.

From what dealings I've had with Jamie, he seemed like a pretty nice guy who had quite a bit of talent. His team was pitted next to us at Road Atlanta and he was always very polite and appreciative of any help given. It is a shame this had to happen. The sport has lost some great people in the past month.

My prayers go out to his family and friends.

Ride Hard!
