    I'm racing at skyline raceway (Dirt Track) I was entering the fourth corner with a few laps to go and then my 4 Cylinder Truck Dug into the clay and rolled over 9 times. I was knocked out and I had a broken arm and a few ribs that were in pain I had a pretty bad concussion in the wreck but I was told by people who were there watching the race that my roof was caved in pretty bad and it looked like I had gone through the crusher. I was cut out of the truck and transported to the near by hospital. the reason I said it almost took my life was I had my roof 8 inch's lower than it was at before the flip and my head was 4 inch's below the roof.

    Were there roll bars on it? If there werent then that should have been a serious safety concern. Glad it didnt kill you though.

    yes there was. the car hit the ground at an awkward angle twice and the roof hit the ground the most in the rolls so it was unavoidable
