He has resigned to ripping around Glamis at Olds with reckless abandon. No regard for anyone’s safety or well being.Dude hasnt finished a race in 10 years and has self inflicted baby mama drama. His opinion is pretty much worthless these days. He is playing the social media card until that drys up also.
Andrew Whitehead walked away to be airlifted to ER Broke L2 and L4 and C6 and sustained a skull fractureIt looks (from this angle/view) that he came up short on the double...or was long on the landing by hitting the previous jump fast. Anytime the front end gets stuffed, and a front wheel leaves town, it hurts. Not much control, nor time to pray. We did it in a 7 truck 20 years ago, and probably only a third the speed. Ours was both lack of skill and equipment. These poor guys had the skill, and the equipment...but I think you need a bit of luck too. They walked away...pride gets hurt, but trucks get rebuilt.
Damn, sorry to hear that. I hope no more damage was incurred by movement after the fact. I shattered C3, and fractured C4...with multiple skull fractures. I hope his headaches go away fast, and he can tough it out without too many meds. If he still had movement and feeling in his extremities, I hope all is well. I don't know him, but surely wish him the best.Andrew Whitehead walked away to be airlifted to ER Broke L2 and L4 and C6 and sustained a skull fracture
Last I heard he was in stable condition
Get well soon Andrew
Johnny1.0 was in the mcarthur trophy truck. The mills team are friends of mine and a few others.
Super Ricky is the best! Great guy and super fun to hang out with. Known and raced with him for 30 years.
Camera gets bumped as the navigator climbs out, but you can still hear some of the ensuing drama. Onboard fire system malfunctioned. Another truck tossed them another fire extinguisher, took 3 to get it put out. I think the engine may be out of the truck this week and get cleaned up to where we can pin down what happened, maybe a broken fuel line.Where’s the video?
