Q: “Do you have resources for experienced HPDE drivers that have had a crash and while are physically okay are a mental and emotional wreck and riding the roller coaster of blame, shame, and self-doubt? I have a friend who had a significant crash last weekend and is struggling with that.” 

A: As a matter of fact, I’ve recently written two pieces about recovering from a crash, so instead of just repeating myself, please go to:

How Do I “Get Over” a Crash
How To Recover from a Crash

This is one of those things that I wish no driver has to go through. But even though crashes on tracks are actually relatively rare, they do happen, so having a plan and some examples of how to deal with this unfortunate situation is what these two articles are meant to do.
