interesting, so the track owns its own ambulance and staffs it independently with their own paramedics? now that you mention it i see that red circle saying blackhawk farms through the blur.

They send it out during the learning curves mock "race" to introduce them to seeing it out there. We dont usually shut races down for crashes unless absolutely neccessary.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Probably because you're German....and I'm not...and that's racist!! Kidding. Germany is "just across the walkway" from Poland, and how often do they come over to say hi!!
