    Anyone there know the condition of 38? From the live feed it looks like right gear and some prop damage.

    Thanks

    What happened? I saw the race and had to leave right after they finished. Saw the Bear pull up and out of the race at lap 7.5 and 232 took second place.

    What happened to PM? Landing gear issues?

    according to the guys on the loaded tv she lost a gear door.
    the camera was on her after the race(in the pits) and they seemed to be inspecting the right inner gear door area.
    i didnt see any prop damage and i'd guess if Thom felt he had prop damage he'd have been on the ground asap not after the race..much the same as the bear was first down.

    I was watching the LoadedTV feed. They said he pulled out of the race with a possible gear door issue. Then a LONG time after Dawson got the Bear down, I saw 38 rolling on all gear but still at high speed across the frame centered on Strega parked on the ramp. Again, THAT particular feed didn't show anything that looked like a gear collapse, but 38 wasn't visible except for about a second during the landing roll.

    she was shown in the pits a bit later on all gear ..no sign of a gear collapse
    but a lot of activity around the right clamshell area.

    Heard PM got real close to Sawbones on landing rollout. Anyone see this or know what happened?

    The announcer on LoadedTv said they lost a gear door. Over at the PM Race Fans Facebook page they mentioned needing to scare up a posse to go look for the missing door...

    PM was on final when the call came over the radio to go arround. when PM passed in front of the pits we could see why. Sawbones was already on the runway. I don't know how close they came as you can't see that part of the runway from the pits.

    PM went arround again and the landing and rollout appeared normal. The gear door problem happened early in the race (maybe lap 4 or 5?) I thought it was a little unusual why an airplane with an apparent problem didn't have priority for landing (Although I never heard a MayDay).

    PM taxied to the ramp norrmally but the airplane was taken to the wash area or a hanger by the wash area. I didn't get a close up view of it.
