Red Hook 2013 Crash
I haven’t gotten the full word back from Red Hook this year, but preliminary reports noted a lot of pretty gnarly crashes, as evidenced by this video. A local (Indy local) racer who was vying for the podium was forced to start from the near back of the pack and pick his way up into the teens due to a really bad wreck during his qualifying round. I’ll reserve speculation on course design or any other external factor contributing to the crashes as the speed and density of these crits may lend to the inherent risk of dangerous wrecks. This one in particular looks like it could have been much worse than it already was. Let’s hope no one was seriously hurt.
