    The consensus is he tried to block. Honestly may have been a combination of that and the guy intentionally tapping him.

    holy shit that was bad...he had to of died instantly...
    something similar happened to jeff gordon awhile back..they have since put something so you cant hit the end of the wall like that..
    its common sense..if their is a lip in a retaining wall somewhere it should be takin care of

    1) that wall shouldn't have been there. 10 more concrete barriers extending to the other part of the infield wall and that guy is still alive.

    2) i bet the other driver feels like the biggest asshole ever. he could have avoided the contact. literally killed a guy.

    That's crazy. I thought it would have been instantaneous due to the amount of negative Gs he had to have experienced. That or the mess that had to have been made of the inside of the car.
    I don't think Mexico cares too much for barriers or safer walls.

    It's speculated he was "declared dead" 45mins later, but with the tarp over the wreck, etc. It's safe to assume he was dead on impact.
