The car I believe to be Ryan Newmans got lucky. The way Carl landed on him before he flipped was out of this world.

It kind of surprised me that they barely mentioned Newman. Dang, did you see the way CE's car hit RN? RN, said the tire went right through his windshield. RN got very lucky, I think even luckier than CE. If that tire hit RN in the head his helmet wouldn't have done much to protect him.

Just thank goodness no one was seriously hurt.

"Just thank goodness no one was seriously hurt." I agree, but it would have been nice to see Jr get caught up in that wreck and not make it to the finish line.

You are one sick person..You need help. I cannot believe you would wish for anyone to be caught up in that wreck. Karma will be chasing your butt for all your
hateful remarks toward someone you don't even know.

You know what comes around goes around! I do not Weasel Busch at all, but I am not happy when he wrecks. These drivers could be seriously hurt when the wrecks happen. No matter who it who wrecks no one should be happy!

Your correct. I was at Dega and saw what happened and
started praying that everyone would be o.k.
We all joined hands and prayed together people I did not even know.

It's just scary how many demented people there are in this world. If it was their loved one who was injured you can bet money they wouldn't be so blaze' in there comments of hoping anyone was wrecked!
People like that Suck!

I was at home praying that no one was hurt. It's sad that a few were. I hope they are recuperating well and don't have permanent or hideous scars.
A broken jaw is not only painful but annoying as hell. I had to have mine surgically broken when I young to get my dang wisdom teeth out. They had grow in real strange and they had no choice but to break the jaw to remove. I suffered for months on liquid food. SUCKS Big Time!
Your a wonderful person Snow to think of others when they need the prayers.
Take Care my friend

WWE NASCAR is just a 40 year old unemployed fatass who lives with his mom, and stays in the basement on the computer eating cheetos all the time.

I've actually been told that you have to be in very good shape to excel in Nascar. I can't think of any fat Nascar drivers that I've ever seen. I think it would qualify as a sport, personally.

I can't stand watching it. What do people see in this? I can go outside in my front yard and watch cars drive around.

It's a contact sport, stuff happens. But don't wish a wreck on anyone, or blast someone who does. Take the high road instead.

In my opinion, everything worked exactly as it was supposed to yesterday. The car protected the driver and he walked away uninjured. The fence kept the car out of the stands exactly as it is designed to do. The stands were far enough away from the fence to allow the fence to bow out like it did in catching the car. The large pieces were caught by the fence. The small pieces went through. Each fan in obtaining their ticket (a legal license) agreed that a certain amount of risk is involved in motorsport. There's a reason why there is a limitation of liability printed on the back of the ticket.

If you want to make the sport even safer than it already is, keep the car on the ground. Design automatically deployed systems (like the roof flap) that stop the car from getting airborne in the first place.

April 2002 i was hit by a semi in my 99 NB. It spun me into a guardrail and slid 125 ft backwards down the highway. Don't remember a thing.
