It was a dad that raced about 10 years ago. Came down tonight signed up himself and his 2 sons (8 & 10). He fell in his first moto, but got right back up and finished. Went up to the starting hill to help his 8 year old (first time racer) and collapsed from the heat and dehydration. Was unconscious for a short time. Chris Vliet is an EMT and was able to stabilize him till the ambulance got there. Poor 8 year old never got to race as they all went to the hospital. They’re from Staten Island.
This is Kelly, Dean’s (the injured guy’s wife. He broke his collar
bone, we assume from the initial fall on the track and he has a slight
concusion from the passing out. But he is doing better today, alot of
pain but home and well.
We would like to thank everyone for all their help with Dean and our
kids. It was helpful to have so many considerate and caring people
around when we were in a strange town (we live in Staten Island)
Thanks again and maybe we will see some of you this weekend, where our
boys can race.
