Thoughts & prayers are with Laurie tonight. Scary report from Canyon is that she had an encounter with a push truck in the pit, is banged up (possible broken ribs & shin), but is upbeat and insisted David & Team race. Great to hear that it isn't worse and wish her a speedy recovery!

Laurie and Tom were two of my first friends in the Sprint Car world. Hope Laurie heals quickly because I know she misses being at the track!

Sorry to hear this,Laurie is a great gal.I hope she has a full recovery.

I don't know the how this could of happened but I was taught by Jim Wells when I first

started working on sprintcars to always make eye contact with the push truck driver and

NEVER walk between the truck and the bumper of the sprintcar.Some of those drivers

just can't be trusted.......GET WELL SOON LAURIE!

I join all of the other well wishers and look forward to my friend since the ole Ascot days getting better soon. There had to be something out of the ordinary going on as Laurie has been around long enough to take care of herself in the pits.

I also heard that after the accident, there was no ambulance or EMT's available and the racers had to perform first aid while 911 was called. Hope this is not true, as it was a practice night with cars on the track and fees charged at the back gate. Somebody (track/USAC) needs to provide the safety crews for the drivers and people in the pits. Maybe it was only an admission fee and your on you own!

My confidential reliable informants information sounded like this really happened and if it is an error, then I apologize to whomever I offended.

All of these race related issues the past week sure make you appreciate the time, effort and expense that the PAS puts out every week for their excellent safety crews. Anyone remember the empty fire extinguishers at Ascot?

USAC is pretty thurough about checking our car over every year at the start of the season and making sure it's safe etc. I find it hard to believe they would allow cars to practice without EMT's or an ambulance on site.

I remember years ago when we ran SCRA at Santa Maria the ambulance was late arriving and

they wouldn't let any cars on the track.Not even to push off to check your motor.

News about Laurie being injured in the pits certainly brings an 'oh no,not Laurie'! Hearing that a 'push truck' was involved is particularly concerning and troubling to hear.1st of all the prayers and ALL the best wishes go to Laurie & Tom for a record recovery lap ~or two.Tom & Laurie are the nicest people that a person could meet ANYWHERE not just at the race track!Laurie always has a smile and kind word when greeted in the pits.The entire 'Moose'team is a enormous benefit to sprint car racing.About those push truck drivers~Catfish,you have ridden with me and have seen first hand the issues that the pushtrucks have getting thru the pits.I agree 1000% to catch the drivers eye,make sure he(or she)knows where you are BUT folks in the pits also have a responsibility to be safe.Strolling down the middle of the pits or walking out from the crowds around the race cars is not a safe thing to do without checking for a moving vehicle!! Pushtruck or race car, we try to be safe.Not saying this was the issue with Laurie's injuries(if anybody knows how to be safe in the pits it is this lady)but it brings a negative reaction to the folks that donate their time and expense to be a part of a sprint or midget program.The only time that pushtrucks are mentioned is cases such as this.That is unfair!The show would go on without us but it would be a helluva lot slower!! Try to think of it this way,if there is a sprintcar or midget fired,there is a pushtruck that made that happen.Where is it?? See you @ the track,Skip

Don't get me wrong Skip,You I trust.The PAS has good push truck drivers with the exception

of one whom I haven't seen there for several years.He backed up in the work area without looking behind him and ran into Rod's left front tire.Even when I was yelling at him he kept on coming.

Luckily it didn't flatten the tire.Anyway you're right about walking in the pits,some spectators

don't pay enough attention.Riding with you did give me a different perspective on how difficult

is to drive through the pits.....See you later on this season.

Laurie Sertich
C/O John C Lincoln Medical Center

She is NOT accepting phone calls at this time and is very limited on visitors she will see.

Thanks again for the support.

What you heard is true, Laurie was just standing by their race when hit by a push truck that was going entirely to fast. I wasn't there on Thrusday night,but was told this by a very realiable source. Also USAC had nothing to do with practice,this was all done by the race track.

Get well soon Laurie!

Ok but is not the track promoter of Canyon Speedway and the USAC/ CRA race director one in the same ? Also I was not there when this incident happened and do not know if there was an ambulance and or EMTs on the property. But if there wasn't. Not a single engine should have even been fired until the proper safety people were in place . No exceptions. And if the ambulance has to leave the property. Everything should be shut down until another is there to replace.
We need more sprint car racing at our home track.
