I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but I think its pretty sad for the young fella and a reminder of how dangerous racing is,  I really feel for him and his family

He lost both legs, apparently.  It was a very nasty crash.  Poor chap.
Not sure why they make it a blame game, I reckon they wanted to get him out of the car in one piece...

I don't know why they don't have a fire truck with the jaws of life and other vehicle extraction tools at these types of events.

Poor fella.  Did they say why the car he ran into was almost parked on the track?
