Very sad. Apparently they impacted the flag station inside turn 11 at high speed. He must have been carrying A LOT of speed through 12 and missed 11 all together. It's actually one of the few turns I like at CVR. Not my favorite track and it's in the middle of nowhere which I am sure didn't help their situation.
Pax or not, if you're really pushing it on the track (i.e. 7/10ths or more), you should be fully caged with a 5 or 6 point harness and wearing a real SFI helmet with neck restraint.
