Accident At The ’14 Grand National Roadster Show

This doesn’t look fun at all.

“Folks, please, always make sure that your throttle is free and doesn’t stick. Not that we wanted this to be the first post for the 2014 Grand National Roadster Show, but one of the contenders was approaching the viewing area to be judged when his throttle stuck, running over GNRS judging chairman Vic Cunnyngham, resulting in serious, though not life-threatening injuries. And the roadster is in bad shape. ALWAYS make sure that your linkage is free of hangups and interruptions or this can happen to you.
Update 5:48 PM: Vic has had X-rays and has no broken bones, and is breathing fine, according to GNRS promoter John Buck. He was airlifted out of the Fairplex as a precaution. It goes without saying we wish Vic well.
