Second winning post 7/26/11
I think we are all being a little narrow minded on this one. Even the most drunk Rahmer hating idiot dosnt really want to see Fred loose his life during a crash. If Im wrong and you are going to tell me that we have individuals attending races that truley hope that a driver they dislike loses his life while crashing, this person has major mental issues far beyond his alcohol intake and should probably be institutionalized. With that said I truley believe a big part of the facination that most fans have for motorsports is the POSSIBILITY of a crash. Lets face it everytime we go to any race there is a chance that someone could be injured , machines destroyed, and yes the possibilty of a fatality. I mean why do most race fans like watching the fastest division. When I attend my favorite weekly oval which happens to have 4 divisions I enjoy the division with the fastest cars, not to say the racing in the other three divisions isnt great, but there is somthing more exciting about the guys who are laying it on the line taking the biggest RISK. Apparently most racing fans feel this way because I doubt the Grove would have been packed this past weekend if THE WORLD OF PURE STOCKS had come to town. The racing would probably be much better, more passing, close race at the front, but the speeds would be a fraction of what a 410 sprintcar can produce. With speed comes excitement, that excitement is based on the fact that these men are strapping into a purpose built rocket cars with open wheels and a huge chance that when 24 are racing as fast as they can together somthing bad may happen and often times does. Ed C. if you truly never want to see a bad accident or fatality at a race you better stop going now, because unfortunatley its not a matter of IF someone is going to be hurt bad or fataly its WHEN. There is really no way to make motorsports completley safe although great strides have been made. Then again would anyone even want to watch or care if it was impossible for anyone to get hurt, the risk would be gone, without risk the excitement would diminish greatly. Im sure most of you know a driver personally, everytime I see a couple of the guys i know personally strap in i have nothing but imense respect for them and there complete lack of fear. Thes guys know better then anyone the risk they take, and thats why they do it, because not just anyone one has the stones to do it. If you remove the danger and make it completely safe any idiot with the cash to buy a car would be out there racing which would ruin everything.
