      Listening to the NRA on school safety is like listening to the tobacco companies on cigarette safety. (h/t nightsweat)

    •  Hell, if that were true (no crashes) (0+ / 0-)

      then many current NASCAR afficianados would never bother to attend or watch the action.

      •  Do you watch racing? (0+ / 0-)

        With the exception of Bristol, Richmond and the Road Courses real racing fans prefer clean races.  At the short tracks you want to see banging and spinning' and dudes winning with the entire front sheet metal gone.  Road course racing is all about the "chrome horn" (https://www.youtube.com/...).

        WHat fans like is tight racing.  Tight racing leads to wrecks.  But it also leads to incredible passes and what we love the most  - near misses.  THe only good thing about a wreck is being able to hit the bathroom without missing anything.
