If that was a dunlop they need to get thier shit together .How many tire failure's last year ? not to mention the fact it almost killed mLadin a coupe times .I don't see tire failures in motogp and the bikes are more hp and the tracks more demanding .AMA they are always talking about a tire spinning on the rim or failures blow outs etc .What 's the deal ?

Yamaha's Jason DiSalvo just crashed at Daytona International Speedway, with the factory teeneage star crashing in the high speed NASCAR Turn Four Area. His bike skidded approximately 150 yards from the crash site and down the front straight. Tire failure is the suspected cause and shredded rear tire could be seen as the bike was wheeled away.
DiSalvo was on the R1 Superstock bike.
DiSalvo, a bit shaken, was brought into the Yamaha pits instead of the medical center. Although he said he could not remember the crash, DiSalvo appears to have escaped major injury. He told observers he couldn't remeber what happened during the crash.
