Tybee Carnage

Alan called in today to check on the status of Frisland, but he also had some Tybee 500 updates.

So after Day 1 of the 2008 Tybee 500 Team Velocity was sitting in 3rd place. After Day 2 they had fallen back in the standings, but still within an hour of the leader. The major catastrophe for the day occurred when Captain Trey fell off the boat and broke the rudder linkage, so Alan had to grab the rudders, one in each hand, and go recover Trey from the chop. And to top it all off this was caught on video from a helicopter!

I'll keep an eye out for the video and put it up here...it sounds like a blockbuster.
