Re: Scary Crash in the

I watched it live, and cheered when Stewart got the win (I'm a Dale Jr. fan but was happy to see a Chevy win it) but then knew something terrible had happened when I saw that 32 car hit the fence. This was a testament to how safe the cars are since Jake walked away, but also shows that they need to beef up the catch fence.

I don't mean this as any personal knock on you, but a statement like this both confuses and amuses me. It's like saying, "I'm happy that this baseball player hit a home run with a Rawlings bat instead of a Louisville Slugger."

Re: Scary Crash in the

Because in NASCAR, there are 43 potential winners versus the 2 of most other sports...so with the high odds that your particular driver of choice won't win, it helps to have another team or manufacturer to root for. In a way each manufacturer is a team itself. I'm a Chevy guy, so I was glad a member of the Chevy team won.

It's similar to how I root for the NL team in a World Series (if my team isn't in it) or the All-Star Game since my team is from the NL.

So is NASCAR going to pay for all of these fans' medical bills?

There are disclaimers on the tickets that say you could possibly injured and that NASCAR is not reliable

I somehow merged responsible and liable into a word that was already a word.
