That was one nasty crash. You don't see that shit everyday. Great Balls Of Fire!!!
couple of million dollars up in smoke cool though
when was that?
can they really walk away from shit like that? and if so, why isn't some of that technology put into use in street cars?
wow that was bad. so much going on at 1nce
lotta pants got shat in the grandstand. Mudville
That crash was from a NASCAR craftsman truck series in i think 2001.. It involved Geoff Bodine and he was very close to dying.. i think he was like 61 at the time.. he made a full recovery over about a year or so
Yes people walk away from crashes a lot more serious then that in open wheel racing and in Nascar...the reason that this tech is not in street cars is the cost of it to be put into street cars...just like cars could be getting 100's of miles to the gallon if we wanted to pay all the extra money to have the tech put into cars.
the cost is too much? that's bullshit people have fucking plasma tv's in their suv's. you hear all kinds of ridiculous stories about people customizing their cars with toys nobody ever walks in and says "make it safer the chicks dig that" the problem is people would rather look good than be safe. when mtv pimps a ride do they add safety features? given the choice most people would take some 24" rims over extra safety features. people are stupid if the features on a vehicle arn't visibly noticable or pretty flashing lights they arn't spending money. if the airbag dashboard light comes on indicating a failure do people rush out and have that fixed? no. why isnt this technology in cars like rolls royce? they already cost 300 grand so fuck it might as well add some of this shit, no? why? because assholes would rather have a bar or an ipod or other stupid shit in their car. I really don't blame the manufacturers they are giving people what they want. if you presented peolpe with a choice between two cars one very pretty all tricked out with rims sunroof woodgrain GPS all that bullshit, then another car thst was really plain no power windows no power locks not even a fucking radio then tell them they are ten times more likely to survive a crash in the second car than in the first. which one do you think they would pick? the reason cars don't get 100 mpg is because the fucking oil companies suppress that shit.
about the only thing that makes this kinda racin fun to watch
cap-n_ovious do you feel better? take a deep breath exhale now do that 10 times and you will feel great. Now you forgot to mention other unsafe shit like that redneck show where they fix up 18 wheelers do they pimp them big trucks in a safe way???????/ Or them other cracker jacks making them fancy as motorcycles do they do it safe? Your right they dont its a about the looks here in my good ole America but you take the good with the bad and you keep on loving this great place right. Thank you. now if i can further assist you in feeling better im here for you capnabvious. on one more note i agree that the wrecks are the only thing that makes neckcar err nascar interesting. sorry guys i just dont think that 45 morons driving in cirlce, stopping to gas up and have his flat tire fixed is not that interesting hell you see that shit everyday here on the freeways of L.A for free.
Calibaldie, as always you are fucking pointless.
sorry just once I wanted to be one of those guys that rants and raves and tells everyone their stupid. it's a crazyshit fantasy of mine
HOW DOES THE SOUTH FILL THERE POTHOLES? THEY WAIT FOR A NIGGER TO CROSS THE STREET.(FUCKIN NIGGERS)
cap-n_ovbvious was just stating the obvious. He's absolutely right. But cars are getting safer with crumple zones and air bag technology. The rollcage is the thing that would save your ass in just about any wreck, but no automaker is going to ask it's customers to lose a bunch of interior room and have to climb over and into a jungle gym to get in their car.
If ythe powers that be wanted to make us all safer they would require us to wear helmets. that alone would probably cut the deaths in half. Saftey equipment in cars costs a bundle , those air bags cost crazy money , pop them of and se what I mean. 5 point belts with a roll cage and helmet would be far cheaper then all the passive shit they install and dosen't work nearly as well. But fact is a helmit will flat fuck up a hair do.
Man, that little escapade will fuck up more red neck crackers than another tornade in a trailer park. What's in it for me? Less cracker asshole trailer trash: fewer filthy ass barking stupid fucking dogs.
hatedogs go cookie
thats crazy, the fire going through the fence and into the crowd, I bet some redneck complained about his beer spilling!
Hey hydrochronics; Get your hood and robe - and get the fuck out of my country. You fucking WHIGGER. You were lucky enough to be born white...just be cool with that. You sound like a an uneducated fag when you bag on people for being born a different color than you. Enough said....-Fucking puke. Now leave me your chronics and leave.
....Oh yeah....I'm a white guy too asshole.
mechanicman, once again you are right. any paramedic or ER doctor will tell you that half of all traffic deaths are head injuries that a helmet could have prevented. That is why I oppose helmet laws for motorcycle riders. If people really cared about safety you couldn't get in your car without a helmet. It is unfair to just require motorcyclists to wear helmets.
hey thunder fag you say pointless. got your stupid ass to read it didnt i? scoreboard bitch and neckcar i mean nascar still sucks.
