  • some people need to realize that some of the turns on 240 are slick sometimes and need to slow down, just how fast was he running anyway? it doesnt say how fast he was traveling

  • Yes, there are a lot of slick corners on that road, even in the rain. Also a lot of small hills which, in the wind and rain, can easily cause your vehicle to move around and lose grip.
