That was my fear with running a quick release, so I decided against one. That could of been much worse.

LOL!!! That's why you check to make sure it's secure before you leave the pits. I usually don't take mine off unless I have to so that I know it's locked in place.

I try to always check it. I think what happened was I put it in place and then changed it's placement to get a better view of my oil pressure gauge.

Wow, very lucky!!

I was at Nationals at Mid Ohio in either 06 or 07 watching the CMC / Factory Five qualifying when Karen Salvaggio had her steering wheel come off going through the kink in her factory five car and went off left and smashed into the wall. The car was destroyed and she was lucky to be ok.
Very scary indeed!!

I don't take mine off for this very reason. I leave it on at all times unless the task I'm doing requires it to come off. I don't need to remove mine to get in and out (6'2" @ 250lbs) and I don't need to remove it to impress my friends and neighbors.
Leave it on and check it often.

Jay and I both pull hard on it as part of our preflight (race) check after strapping in.

Another view, and afterwards watch my rear view mirror. You can catch Pete making a quick pit entrance.
