I got a hold of the race on tape. I watched the ESPN2 slow-mo on my vcr on slow-mo and watched the crashes happen in ultra-slow-mo. Anyway, they were too blurry to see exactly who crashed and who did not. I am getting mixed reports both online and from the commentators on ESPN2 (and the ESPN2 commentators have been known to be quite inaccurate at times with names and bike models.. like when they called the YZF750 an FZR750, etc..etc..). Anyway, I'm not sure but from what I can tell from the blurry images, it looked like it wasn't actually John Pearson who plowed into Russell, but someone else.. I think John was behind that guy and ended up low-siding his GSXR after clipping another downed bike sliding across the grid. Not too sure though as everything was so blurry. Anyway, Scott didn't do the wise thing by making himself wider on the grid when his bike stalled on him. The narrower he makes himself the better.. There is no way he could have made it off the track perpindicular to the racing line at turtle speed and not expect to get hit! Regardless though, I hope they all recover quickly!
