You've got to be kidding, did you watch the video??? Travis stuck his nose in where it didn't belong. And yes, he's one of( if not )the cleanest drivers around today!
if you watch the video Travis was in there on Brock and Brock got out of the throttle and got into him it was nobody's fault

if you never been in a car , then you don't know how,why or what happened. I would be willing to bet that if you talked to both guys they would say it was just a racing deal which is exactly the way I saw it.. It is gonna happen..period. Nobodys fault. Remember, sprintcars don't have mirrors like stockcars and drivers can barely move their heads from side to side so vision is limited..

I would agree it was a unfortunate racing deal.  You are right about the not having a rear-view mirror part.  which is what I was trying to say before.  Had Brock known he was there he would of given him room.

They need to send these pictures to Eagle Chassis. They were one of the companies that bad mouthed the XXX chassis about being Chinese built and poor quality. This chassis did not do it's job, they were very lucky Travis didn't go over hard one more time or he would have been in big trouble. No car or cage should ever break apart like that one did.

o.k. people it is time to put this one to bed.it is clear both camps have fans that see things different the fact is Brock called Travis saturday morning and where all o.k. on what happened Brock said he did not no he was there and we believe him. As for racemom you kill me with your lack of class once again.Your a special person and by the way I will apoligize now .If we had not lent your brother parts to run in Yakima and Elma he would not have crashed so that would clearly make it Travs fault to.

Doug, you and your family are amazing people, you have raised great boys who may be tough, fun and sometimes a little crazy but are always respectful and good hearted. I appreciate them and you. I am very thankful that Trav is okay, I am glad everyone walked away from their accidents. Thank god, unlike others, there are still people with class out there...hopefully they arent all in Canada! ;)

People get so worked up on here, but the funny thing is that all these guys for the most part are good friends and care about each other, your the only ones that create issues.

Don't even go there TRAVS dad, and DO NOT bring my brother into this at all.  I have more class then you will ever know.  Simply I watched the video and that is what I seen.  I mean no ill regard to anything or anybody.   I will not apoligize for my own opinions.  And if I had to what about all the others who voiced thier opinion?  I would think you should be greatful your son is okay by the looks of the sprint car and as someone said, "lets put this to bed".  If you have anything more to say to me, please PM me or email me.  Thank you  and I am glad your son was safe!

Well..I think this thread has run its course. Judging from the pm's I have recieved about certain parties slingin the chit, it only seems appropriote to close this down before it gets out of hand.

Just want to add one thing. I am really glad Trav made it out of that ugly wreck ok. You need to give thanks to someone for that one kid. ;) You were lucky....

Rickt :cool:
