Good thing these drivers weren't running shine back in the day. Those boys didn't care if the road was full of craters or smoothe as baby's butt, they just went out and got the job done.

In all of professional sports, NASCAR drivers definitely whine and cry more than any athlete.

NASCAR drivers aren't shine runners trying to lose cops on country roads, though. They're race car drivers trying to race. Shine runners didn't have the luxury of complaining about poor road conditions and demanding that they be fixed, but had to deal with what they had because it's just how it was. Shine-running wasn't a professional, regulated sport.

Pot holes in the middle of a track aren't an added challenge for drivers. They're a safety hazard. If you're driving down a city street at 25 MPH and hit a pot hole, you mutter a curse word and go on. If you hit it at 180 MPH on a race track with forty other cars, you could have a fifteen-car pile-up and opportunity for driver injury or even spectator injury. Injuries and deaths aren't supposed to happen, and we do what we can to keep it from happening.
