As the first big car heat was coming to take the green flag the starter decided he didn't want to go green, so, of all things, he ran out onto the middle of the track waving the yellow! I honestly think I saw the hands of God around him as the cars were wrecking on both sides of him, but no one got within 3 feet of him.

Remember that day all to well, a day Id like to forget But yea, Matt had his Superman cape on that day!
