Yeah, what the hell happened. I hope that they weren't hurt too bad.

I was there in the staging lanes when it happened so I didn't see it but heard the aftermath.

He was running in a money bracket class. Supposedly what happened was he went to fast on that particular run and hit the front brakes really hard so he wouldn't "break out." Doing between 130-140 MPH he hit the brakes a little TOO hard and lost it.

From what the announcer was saying he seemed to be in good spirits considering what had just happened, and while pretty beat up and somewhat rashed for the most part he was OK. Again, this is what I got from it and not a "he's my best friend and I know everything" account.

I really hope he is in fact OK.
