I saw a video from Temecula Motorsports of the crash. They came into one of those big holes to fast and went over i think one time (hard to count because of the dust). Looked pretty violent.

Re: Did anyone see the Herbst TT rollover 12 miles from the finish???

We talked to Mike Smith today about the race. Apparently the TT was trying to make up time from being down with engine electronic problems. A.J. said they came to a spot where he knew they should be only going about 30 mph but they were doing a 100! A.J. knew they were screwed so he locked his hands on the shoulder straps and closed his eyes. The truck flipped end over end landing on it's wheels. The only damage was a squashed oil cooler that they were able to by pass and the hood was toast. Other than that no real bad damage. But hey,..... AT LEAST THE transmission WORKED! ;-)
