    Great day seeing old friends, meeting new ones and oh of course...sniffing nitro!

    Saddened to hear the passing of AA/FA driver/owner Brett Henry, he clicked it off after a 205mph run, chutes out when somehow, the motor re-lit and he crashed hard into the wall, suffering compound fractures to both his arm and leg.
    Got him out of the car, was conscious and talking, but somehow he passed in his sleep...very sad.

    Here's my pictures I posted on FB:

    I read that the throttle hung open causing the crash ?????

    That's more than just an "accident" ???

    No...butterflies were completely closed when the chutes were out.

    We were in the staging lanes when it happened and had a crew member in the shut down area. RIP Brett Henry.
