Daytona 500 wreck

Recommended Posts

When I was a kid we went to the local dirt track races. Once saw the on track flagman get run over while starting a race. Broke his arm.

Have seen what looked like some horrendous wrecks (some from in the driver's seat). Can go on for as long as you want as long as no immovable objects are involved. In fact most of the hard hits occurred when the driver tried to correct and shot into a wall. Nice thing about being airborne is that you are just along for the ride and wonder what is going to happen next.

At 200 miles an hour upside down five feet of the ground "NEXT" is not going to be pretty!

With a good cage and harnesses, mainly expensive.

And now, he says he is being treated for a head injury. Says he is looking forward to getting back into competition on the track. Didn't he say he planned to quit at 40 ? Did he now that he's 42 ? Man, if that bang on the beak didn't knock a little sense into his head, I don't think the best therapist in the United States could straighten this family man out. A lot of you know what happens when you break a promise to yourself. What's he got to prove, and to whom. To his wife and little kids ? There was a great Killer of Bull, the highest paid athlete in the world of his time. Manolete. Study up on the intricate details of his last, his scheduled "despedida" (farewell), fight.   -    CC

Bump to the head made him forget that 40 year of age promise.
