WOW! a crash like Carls BEFORE the plates were added???? NO, NO, No, it's all BECAUSE of the plates! Yeah, cars went flying OVER fences back in the day, but guys didn't get to get out and jog to the finish line back then. Racing is dangerous, but NASCAR has come a long way in improving the cars and the tracks since then. Beside, if we didn't have the plates, Chase and COT to disagree on, what would we talk about??? Oh Yeah, Jr. NOT winning. We'll always have that.

Something is wrong with glorifying wrecks. Dega is where the big one happens and the media doesn't want you to forget that. But is wishing for a big one the right thing to do.
