Mike:

How's your arm and your chest?  The last I heard at the track is that you broke your arm and have brusing on your chest.  

Just to let you know, everyone's thoughts and prayers were for you and Jim that day.   :(

I saw one of the BHF EMT guys giving it to the ambulance driver and pointing out the large chunk out of the side of it.  I believe it was taken to the hospital.

Hope I'm thinking of the right helmet.  This was after the Form. 40 race.  They were loading someone into a ambulance on a streacher near the med. building.  

Hope your doing okay.

Best Wishes,

Mike:

I think your helmet may have gotten sent home with Jim Holmen's stuff.  I was there and helped unload his Hawk and Mike (CCS corner worker) handed me a blue helmet.  (If I remember right, I think Jim has a black and yellow one.)  I wasn't there when his van was packed up, so I don't know for sure.

If it was your helmet, it was in one piece.  However there were two deep gouges in it, through the outer shell to the polystyrene.

Mike if you want to know what happened you can ask me I happened to be right behind all of it ans saw the whole thing unfold. I thought as old men we weren't suppose to get hiurt like that. Well I hope you are doing better than when I saw you and hope everything heals so you can come back and race.
