Hello!!!! An adult should have learned about the dangers of storms and lightning. Racing is an outdoor event and the track officials cannot protect everyone from their own lack of concern over the weather. When lightning heads my way whether I'm at a track,on the golf course, or on my boat, my butt is headed for the car,not in the open,not under a tree,but in a house or the car. Lacadasial attitudes can get you killed
