It looks like if the driver was to stay in the Saddle he would just rolled with the boat and kept on going.
I don't blame him for paling out, What a ride

Pretty sure the laws of physics determined that was not one of his choices.
yea the laws of physics was in play, I just thought his seat belt might hold him in so he could ride it out.
Like I said if it was me I would of bailed out also. Just saying the way the boat rolled right side up and Floated

Should be DQ'd from any further events for the season for lack of functioning kill switch.

I just watched a video of this roll over. Once the boat rolled and landed on the bottom it stopped fairly quickly. So I believe he had a working kill switch
I saw the wreck in person from the pits and thought the same thing. I could of sworn I even saw the driver grab his lanyard from the truck and get in the boat with it right before this happened. Must be more to the story....

I doubt that was the first one. Most successful probably tho. And if I'm not mistaken it was a Revenge.
Yes it was a revenge

Saturday. Scott posted the video. I was there it did not keep going it came to a stop. I watched them go over it after and Safety was the main concern.

Correct me if I'm wrong. The first K5 that Tony had was one of the Hobbits, then the Class Bully then the Revenge with a capsule then same Revenge with out capsule Traffic Cone then wrapped Racing Dirty. The Revenge is for sale now I'm pretty sure.

The K 5 with the dirty racing wrap is the same boat that used to have the capsule. It was orignally one of the K28 "epidemics". Same boat that Sean Naffizer raced as K 124 as well.
