Hey probably posted pictures on Facebook of his best lap time, and then did not understand how he was caught.

I've never asked my ins agent about DEs. Hear diff stories whether they would or wouldn't cover DEs (I have State Farm). The first yr I crossed my fingers and tooks my chances. Then the first DE the next yr, someone slid off the track and pancaked the side of his 3 yr old CS. In the 2+ yrs since, I've seen 3 other cars wrecked at DEs. After seeing the results of that first wreck, I decided to do track w/e ins with Locton. It adds around $250 to the cost of the w/e, but it gives me peace of mind.

Lot of things happen out there.

Not sure how I feel about the prospective felon. A bit sorry but he had his fun and didn't consider the risk he was taking. Now he has to pay the piper (in a big way) and it will be a massive stain on his life. I work for an ins company (hint: Wild Kingdom), they take fraud very seriously.

Dumb dumb dumb. I would bet he is a decent guy without a prior arrest record that made a very bad decision. With any luck all the publicity will dissuade someone else from making the same bad decision.
