When the racing resumed, a Supersport-like group of eight riders formed at the front, as it had in the first 28 laps of the event. The announcers greeted this as excitement, but experienced persons also felt some apprehension as riders bobbed and weaved for position at presumed 180-mph speeds (as the radar-gun people had earlier informed us). On the last dash to start/finish, the maneuvering continued, and as Jason DiSalvo achieved a storybook win on a Latus Motors Racing Ducati 848, whose engine had been heroically changed during the delays, a rider in the group apparently ran his brake lever into another machine, his front tire billowed smoke, and two machines went flipping and spinning. One ran diagonally across the path of a following rider and slammed itself into junk against the outside retaining wall, and the other went into the infield. Thankfully, both riders arose Lazarus-like from our collective fears and walked. It was a true breathless moment.
