And remember its not just having safety equipment, its having the right safety equipment for what you are doing.

A roll-bar is not a cage. Notice that one of the intersection points cracked at the rear of that cage, yet it didn't allow the cage to fail (especially around the driver compartment).

glad he is ok.

"To all racers: Safety equipment saved a life this weekend. Many of you have heard that the 263 mph standing mile Bise Camaro crashed yesterday. Joe Huneycutt was driving the car, and it lost control at around 220+ mph. The car must have done at least 8 barrel rolls before coming to a stop, then it caught on fire. Pretty scary for those of us attending the event. But, the good news is that Joe just has some bumps and bruises, and a few stitches. He is already out of the hospital.

I wanted to point out how important safety equipment is for our cars. We do some dangerous stuff out on the roads and on the track. As a former event organizer, I can't count how many times people complained about being "forced" to install safety gear and wear proper safety clothing. I would invite you guys to share those anti-safety people you know, this gallery of photos. Maybe it will change their mind. Look at the destruction of a 200+ mph accident, and how well the rollcage protected the driver. Joe was also wearing a HANS device, and all proper safety gear.

Be safe out there, everyone!"

I think I remember a FGT flipping a few years back from a chute engineering problem.
