Glad ur ok bro, but track versus street safety..... Um, the track is much, much safer.....those in the know....know....way safer.
Most racers don't even ride the street, Kurt Roberts didn't even have a street license, too risky! Controlled, closed circuit environment is the best place for us.
When you are at the track;
We sweep the track, clear any debris, oil, use airfence for fixed objects for added safety
We have much more run off than streets, less curbs, no telephone poles, less trees, etc.
We have stand by ALS units (medics)
We have corner workers looking out for riders
We are all going the same direction (most of the time)
We don't have cross overs, lights or stop signs....dare I say no police officers!
At our events, and many others, we have professionals like Jason Farrell, Jason Pridmore, Corey Alexander to assist our riders improve performance and learn without trial by fire, which usually hurts.....sometimes really bad. Don't kid yourself though, stuff can happen at the track as well.... The goal is to mitigate risk.
Again, glad ur ok, but as many other seasoned racers here know, the track is far safer for what we do..... Try it and you will see. Still, high risk business and anything can happen, including death.....
Be cool, ride safe and ride the street with more precaution, wide open throttle, blind turns and late braking sequences are really best suited in the race track environment.
