Those day of our carting races still are one of the best memories I have! I laughed so hard during some of those races I fogged up my face shield with the tears from laughing.

Who was it that broke their finger in that big wreck we had? Either Jaz or Johnny. There was a lot of blood on that one and I was sore for a week.

No wonder the owner groaned when we would show up.

I think it was Jaz Sanghera that broke his finger. Jas Dhanda had the worst injury though. He had a big gash in his leg and required stitches. His wife had just bought him some new Blue Jeans, and they had to cut them off in the Hospital. The Nurses just shook their heads when he told them how it happened..... Johnny Sandhu, as always, got off lucky. I think he landed on top of Jas Dhanda.

I still remember the look of confusion and pain on the face of Jaz Sanghera as we went by. Although it was hard to see details due to the tears of laughter as we rolled by..... Image

Yup, it was just a huge pack of us full speed on that light downhill section...and then it was MAYHEM..with carts going everywhere and a huge pile up to my left. I got drilled by Sean and I think Jamie, as we tried to avoid the pile up. Last think I remember seeing was the owner and his partner running to the wreck, to try to peel things apart. It was Jaz, that is what I remembered.

Was that not the trip where I had 7-up in the Aerostar and Dave K. had at least 7-up in his van. I do remember racing him on the highway and only got him on the corners.

That is frickin' hilarious and freaky footage!

The first thing that went through my mind was the General Lee horn. Apparently I wasn't the only one as the comments also have a Dukes of Hazzard reference.

One in a million...
