The sport of car racing is a dangerous game, no matter the level. Such is the case at Wenatchee Valley’s Super Oval. But extreme measures are taken to ensure the safety of those involved at WVSO, which came to bare last weekend.
Lance Mackey was racing in the Tri-State Legends series Sunday and had a bad accident. While traveling about 60-miles per hour, he clipped the tires of another car and rolled with the top of his race car hitting the wall along the home stretch at WVSO. The roll cage in the car partially collapsed on Mackey.
Incredibly, the entire sequence was caught on a Go Pro camera inside the car and shows the incredible response by the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval safety team. This video may be a little graphic, so be advised…
The great news is that, despite being sore, Lance Mackey is OK. Here you see him in a photo posted on Facebook, playing with his kids. Credit Mike Simmonds and the safety crew at Wenatchee Valley’s Super Oval for their incredible response.
