Brock Davidson Bill told his crew the front end lifted - he believes at close to 300 MPH - and then washed out ( straight head wind 12-15 mph)... that's all he remembers of the crash. He was knocked out and air lifted as a precaution.

I decided to start a new thread for all of those that want to want to keep up with Bill's developments after he went down at the Texas Mile this morning.

Bill made a warm-up pass of 208 mph first.

Then I think he made a full pass, but was only clocked at 236. I have heard that he insists that there was no WAY he was going that slow, that it felt very close to or at 300 mph. The data on the bike will tell. The bike survived very well, just the fairing scraped on the left side. The right side doesn't even look like it was in an accident.

Bill has a few broken ribs, a punctured lung (that they probably won't need to stick a tube in), a nicked liver that is slightly hemorrhaging (but should clear up on its own with no surgery), a severe abrasion on the inside of his left knee (so I was told, but given the circumstances it's probably the outside), a broken bottom left index finger that may require surgery (but at a later date), a large gash on his left ankle (I was told on top, but maybe the side) which is not broken (they checked twice because it looks bad) and that has no torn ligaments or tendons, and a bad bruise on his left shoulder (superficial only).

They have him in ICU as a precaution, and will probably keep him in the hospital for a few days.

I was told he has a limited memory of the fall, but this may be due to a possible concussion, and the feel-good meds he is probably on.

I heard he told Billy Shoemaker of Fkawi Racing to leave him at the hospital, go back to the track, and get the track record !!!!!

So now you KNOW he is going to be OK!

I will let him know of this thread so he has something to do while he is convalescing.

I was #3 in staging behind Bill on that run. It freaked alot of people out when he went down. Out of all the people at the track Bill is the last guy you expect to hear has gone down. They sent the Careflight down right away (they where staged at the start line) and it seemed like it took forever for them to load him and take off. Doing what I do it really botherd me it took them so long. Most the time if Careflight does not seem to be in a hurry its TO LATE or its not that bad. Made me fill a lot better after talking to Bob and Texas Mile Staff and them saying that Bill was alert and talking. If I know bill it wont be to long and he will be back on the track.
