doesnt change the fact that the layout blows.. and throttle stuck ?? I guess he should wire in an ign. switch so he could shut the engine off?

Not much different than most races here in MI this summer. More accidents than I can ever recall.
Poor shut down, no mud, hard/poor placed barriers, and rough pits are going to kill somebody.

Track preparation here in Michigan needs a long hard look.
Shut down area is a must.

I could go on and on posting crash videos from the past two years here in Michigan. Many of which could have been avoided.

Wow....how many of you haters even race?

Their are safety rules at all the tracks we run.
In all those crashes.... did anyone get killed? Did fans get hurt? NO!
Sounds like the tracks are safe...not saying their great and I agree some tracks need more work. We need to learn from this crash and make some changes.

Alot goes back to the driver...he needs to control his truck for the different tracks he runs.

Shit happens and some things you cannot control. The bails did their job and stopped the truck and he walked away. If you don't like the places we race then don't race.

You are some kind of dumbass, sure responsibility goes on the driver, but as a promoter you have to plan on worse case scenario, not just hope nothing goes wrong. None of those had enough shut down, plain and simple, but until people start just loading their stuff up and not racing, tracks won't change.

For those of you who do not know, momsmotorsports is a promoter of mud racing. Now, I think you are going about this the wrong way, posting on here and we got mud dot com in a negative way that will only hurt the sport of mud running that you yourself are trying to promote and make safe. There are better ways to bring attention to the areas that are lacking safety. I may be wrong but this seems like a direct attack against those who compete in the West Michigan Mud Runs races. Maybe instead of bashing their race tracks and attacking the drivers you could contact Tim or Jason and talk about your concerns, or are they taking too much attention away from the runs you promote and hurting your bottom line? You should know that you are hurting the sport and you are not being proactive in making this a safer and bigger event for more people to enjoy. There are better ways to do this, acting childish is not one of them. Just my .02

1. Kill switch lanyard like a jet ski or boat has.
2. Haybale jump to powerlines....maybe its just the video but a lightning storm looked entirely possible.
3. Event promotoers and participants who can't type complete sentences arguing, entertaining for certain.
