    Nice!

    Kind of like TOR, we could probably charge $10 for that special tour.

    Holy crap, I never noticed that the K-rail stopped right there!

    Sean is right, that's an e-ticket Disney ride experience standing there.

    Probably not a great idea for anyone to be standing right there considering Corson hit that wall on Sunday w/his clipon and forearm...

    Just sayin'....

    We wouldn't normally allow a bystander to stand there. That is why Russ was right there with her incase some quick foot work was needed.

    With all due respect, at that point of the race track the bikes are traveling at around 250ft/second. By the time someone realized it was a bad spot, it'd be too late.

    I would prefer we didn't have anyone, spectator or race day staff beyond that k-wall.

    No doubt. Three injured people > one injured person. I am all for hanging out by the wall and getting the experience, but having anyone that close to the track is just asking for issues.

    Nothing is due me, and in mutual respect, my personal opinion is different. However, I have neither the authority nor desire to make those judgement calls.. I will say that it only seems likely that if something bad happens at 1, it isn't going to matter where you are standing, behind the wall or not.
