medical terminology usually related to a broken collar bone......hope the rest of the season is explosion free for the AAA team.....
would guess 'playing with pain' definitely applies rite now.

I'm no fan of JFR, but I was glad to see Hight get back in the seat so quickly.
He must be one tough son of a gun.

Pretty awesome win. At the time of the crash, the chassis that won yesterday was a completely bare frame with nothing on it. Built that new car and it ran great, Robert also did great, and they stretched the points lead.
