Woodbine Smash up, Epilogue

Dave Perkins of the Toronto Star updates us on the drivers hurt in the massive Woodbine pile up a month ago.

I'm glad we can chuckle about what Roger said. Having been there when Billy Haughton was fatally injured, it could have been a lot worse.

I still can't link that race here via youtube, partially because of my philosophy on the blog, but mostly because I don't want to watch it again. Once was clearly enough.
