Jimmy Spencer's return to the track following a week off with no pay was rather eventful. Spencer lost control of the Sirius ride today and smacked the wall. Spencer had to take a provisional.

Rodriguez rode for eight continuous hours followed by a fifteen minute break over and over again, day and night for eight days.

Rodriguez is a university lecturer from Chicago who's dubbed the King of Rollercoasters.
He did have doctors to ensure he did not suffer any physical damage. (------------)
