Taking Helmet Off

Before long the blue TJ started getting warm again and was soon just too hot to run. We needed more coolant. I pulled off all my safety gear (the Impact helmet, Necks Gen neck brace to protect my spine in an awful wreck, intercom wire, and air tube all work great, but they are not what you want to be taking on and off all day) and started hiking to the main pit about half a mile away. It was a nice day for a hike but a better day for racing.
