For some, it was over early

Jun 1, 2008 | Posted by: lilbit88 | Full story: www.gastongazette.com

The crash on lap 18 of Sunday's Best Buy 400 was almost apocalyptic in scope. It was the kind of crash normally associated with tracks like Talladega, not tracks like Dover International Speedway.

Bad luck for Little E again. Did E Sadler make it out of there alive?

Bad luck for a lot of very good drivers. E made it out of there alive but dropped 3 spots in the points. He probably won't recover from that.

INO, Gilligan should have let up a bit. It was only lap 18.
You're over on this forum??..I'm afraid to venture to Mikey's forum...I know there are people over there anxiously waiting for him to drop out of the top 35. Certainly hope E doesn't do that either!!

Hey Dan! I like Elliott I'm thinking he was leary of Mayfield but hey still his fault or his spotters. I wonder if he's going to Prelude this weekend or not. I guess I'll find out.

What was Denny thinking driving right into the wreck at race speed? I think Dale Jr. might have been okay had Denny not done that.

But that didn't hurt him in the points, he's still 3rd. But he's gonna have to start running 'balls to the wall' before long.

Topix must be cross-posting stories to a variety of forums because the Sadler forum keeps getting linked to these stories that just happen to mention him.

I wish they'd stop doing that and let us create our own discussions.

It just causes problems and stirs things up. We're not trolling or lurking - the discussions show up on our site and we read them.

Some of you say stupid things and we respond ...

For the wives of drivers who wreck either easy hit or hard it doesnt matter, if their hubby gets hit the wrong way it could very well kill them or injury them very badly. zGuess some people have forgotten about Adam Petty, Kenny Irwin, Dale Earnhardt Sr., and all the drivers who have horrible wrecks that could have killed them.

So Karen has a right to be upset. It dont matter what kind of race car you drive its all the same for family and friends to watch their husband,father,son,and even daughters wreck and be scared to death.
So the comment was very uncalled for. People need to thnk before they speak or write.

That is the problem on these forums.
People either don't think before they speak or they simply don't care and say inflammatory things just to get people all riled up.

Not to speak for others but perhaps what the poster meant by Elliott making it out alive was the fact that no one kicked the crap out of him for driving like an idiot...but that's just my opinion...
