      In yet another installment of my “Bad day at…” series, I bring you a formation lap incident from Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, Ca. when a motor seizes and sends a kart spinning in front of me.

      Dang…hope you’ll be okay soon.  Sure sorry for the mishap.  I saw the two dirt covered karts when we came back around on the green flag lap but couldn’t see the numbers…I was watching what I was doing entering turn 2 at speed.  Didn’t see the kart numbers until the cool down lap.  Guessing you whacked the arm hard on the engine.  No tossing pizza dough right handed for a while, Mr.

      Thanks Bill, but I’m probably done for the season.  Prelim x- rays show chipped & fractured bones in my elbow.  I was on the wrong side of the track to take your advice and stay to the inside…  And we don’t toss our dough.  I’ve already cut back the fiberglass in the splint so I can sign checks.
