The tragic accident this past weekend this past weekend in Lucerne was just that, "an accident". The offroad racing community has a great record of saftey that is always improving. Please take a step back and let things settle and the investigations be done before making any judgement on whether or not racing should continue on public lands. The closing of public lands to racing would be a bigger tragity than the recent accident.

I don't feel sorry at all for those who lost their lives. Their families ? Yeah.
Standing a few feet away from these off-road trucks going over 70mph ? What are these people thinking to risk their lives in such a reckless way ? DUHHHHHH !!!
"Hmm, let's stand a few feet away while these trucks jump over a dirt mound going 70mph and can't see what's on the other side."
..."Okay, I'm sure nothing bad will happen."
Every one of them is an automatic Darwin Award winner. Skip the "nominee" process. They win.

Gee you're in a grouchy mood. What's wrong? Disability check hasn't arrived? Disappointed it was only 8 people that died? Someone told you Santa Claus isn't real? Cheer up you still have Harry Potter and Speed Racer.
