I started racing in 1975 in District 6. I raced at Sleepy, Hurricane, Bethel, Bushkill, Stormstown and Pine Grove. These tracks were mostly natural with single jumps. Whoop sections came naturally on the straights. Most major injuries happened at the start and natural whoop sections.
Most current major injuries involve an obstacle. National tracks became this way because of spectator approval. These track have too much throttle timing. If you aren't on your game, you are down and probably hurt. It is sad it evolved to this point. RIDE SAFELY
