To all that comment on the subject of racing hurt.Your not on the track or in the car. This decision belongs to NASCAR and the drivers the last thing we(as fans)need in NASCAR is more rule changes. The reason the sport has grown to what it is today is due to performance with GRIT and heart. Tony has both.

I think that the drivers are not acting hurt, Smoke was really hurtin' when he wrecked. As far as Ricky Rudd goes I would not have raced then.Davey Allison, heck I'm 12 I don't know who he is so no comment. I think that unless the injuries are life threatining the drivers should be able to drive where and when they want.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
