Wow the off road community has had a hard month . Two deaths of well known people. The rock bouncing world first and now Mega trucks. Both simple errors that cost them their lives. I've had many, many close calls my self and still have no idea why I'm not dead. Just remember as race season approaches and you spend sleepless hours pounding away prepping your rig, be careful
- putting even just a lap belt on at all times. Even when just moving a rig. Throttles stick.
-never standing in front of or behind a rig or even between a rigs tires on fire up or when shifting into gear
-always putting a helmet on when doing a test burn
-watching for little ones that may be near
-not jacking around in the pits
-not jacking around while lined up to compete
-keeping your speed down near spectators
I could go on but I'll end with respect the machine and use your heads.
Have a fun safe race season
