It's a wrap!

T9 at summit point flagger called out 'we just witnessed a hell of an event' as I stumbled off track hot into the pits formula D style.

How did this happen??? Checked torques before event, no other warning signs/vibrations. Hub is broken missing about a half inch of spindle - the rest is still on the axle, wheel bearing shot, and the axle sheared at the chamfer between the spline and the thread.

The bearing and hub were new this season, unsure on axle age.
