GM said it was “unfortunate that this incident happened.” The company attributed it to “many factors,” including weather and track conditions.

Too much HorsePower???
Yes I am still alive and kicking.  Smiley  It has been a VERY hectic past few years.  Raising 2 granddaughters and having one knee and two hip replacements has really slowed me down.   Cool
