OMG, I hope Martha is not in this and is ok. We love talking to her at the races.
per Robyn Gordon: Yes, it was RGM semis hauling SST trucks for ROC in Mexico City. Mexican driver crossed over and hit Mike head on and Martha turned her truck on it's side trying to avoid accident. Both semis are totaled. Now accessing damage to SST trucks. Mike is in the hospital with a few broken bones. Martha is ok. Trying to get them back the states.
Is the Mike who drives for RGM across country and also drives for RPM?
wither way im glad they are OK. mike is one hell of a guy
yeah, that's a bummer man
All three speed xxs will run together today
As far as Mexico City everyone in the accident was OK however it remains to be seen the damage to the racecars
I'm glad everyone is ok.
I saw the Instagram pic, that will probably buff out....
