Exclamation VIDEO: Gruesome aftermath of crash

Warning: This video is not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach.

Kiddies,
There's a reason why they make reinforced riding boots for racers. WEAR YOUR FREAKIN' GEAR!

I wonder if he still thinks that racing boots are uncool.

I hate to ruin it for gear nazi's everywhere (Hey, I am one) but racing boots would not have saved him. If the impact was enough to cleave thru the bone, it would've went right thru the thin boot armor. Hey, gear is protection not a guarantee...

I wonder if he will walk again. I think that sort of injury is fixable...

Well, we don't know exactly how the injury was caused, but we do know that you never see that kind of injury on the racetrack, where everybody's wearing anti-crush boots.

It looked like he was wearing tennis shoes, which are under-ankle footwear. If he had been wearing riding boots, it's very likely the injury would have been somewhat, if not significantly, decreased.

Since we have no idea exactly what happened though, it's difficult to play Monday Morning Quarterback.

Absolutely correct. Again, I dont want to take away from the "Wear you damn gear, people!" message. I'm behind that one 100%

man I hope that guy is healing up. There is a chance that an injury that severe can leave him with some permanent problems. If the nerves in the foot are trashed he might end up with a useless foot.

I bet if he wasn't doing one leg off wheelies he wouldn't have one foot hanging off. Big Boys my ass, more like Stupid Boys.
