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


not that it makes teh loss any more tradgic, but jamie was only 25.


the views and opinions expressed by tony (cbrf2boy) are the ramblings of a total idiot., it's administrators, moderators, and members don't necessarily agree with and are not responsible for anything this idiot has to say.
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!

i think this season is just bad for motorsports in general. lots of crashes, lots of deaths & injuries. maybe its the motorsports y2k bug or something :( b carefull out there.
