We have some different opinions about how much blame goes to either party, that's for sure.  But I think we all agree the rider assumes risk and none of us wants the industry or track days to be put in jeopardy. 

I come from a family of drag racers that goes back to my grandmother.  Not professional races, but club races and weekend races on the strips local to us.  No matter what happened to the racers, no one was going to jeopardize the track. We all had too much to lose.  If nothing else, it kept us from doing too many stupid things on the street.  It gave us an organized, legal location to test out our fortitude.  You cruised on Friday nights, picked you challengers and met them at the track on Saturday.  I feel like something similar is at stake here.

I'll have to conceed that that sandbag caused his bike to carsh worse that it would have had he not hit it. That said, the track has insurance - and that insurance should be required to cover costs of medical treatment above what his insurance covers - not 15mil
