I too appreciated Joe Roberts after race tire marks smile, sorta like “ no harm no foul” but now I know what it’s gonna take!

Gonna take a lot more than something like that bump to ruin his day at the track.
He's a scrappy fighter, that's for sure. I'll bet he was happy to be able to make the finish and ONLY lost one place after Gardner crashed into ( ) him.

but, I'm sure there's a little "ok, buddy, next time" buried in there - not very deep either.

great weekend of racing all around.

No doubt the tech is saving guys.

Glad the airbag suites are mandatory.

Hope he heals quick. Kid has a bright future.

That's scary data. Glad the technology exists to minimize damaged
Wonder if they could create an external airbag to protect hands & legs? maybe become bubble boy a few ms after crash?
