"Ya'll come back now, ya hear!"
After being held up for hours in a traffic jam caused by a crash that forced the closure of the south exit of the racetrack, our veteran motorsports photographer was shocked to capture this image of fans being "waved by" as they finally managed to leave the facility and make their way home.
Condition of the occupants of the vehicle involved in the wreck is unknown.
The MotoGP returns to Laguna Seca July 18th, 2008.
