If he had a neck he wouldn't have made it.

Hopefully he can drive again.

Holy gently caress how is he alive? Glad that he's still living. That was one of the most vicious hits I've seen since Wheldon or Bodine.

I saw that clip and was shocked. And now I'm just utterly bewildered at how he managed to get out of that with non-life threatening injuries. That's like the best case scenario for a crash like that.

I don't think he had any choice in the sponsor, to be fair.

Besides, it's always in style to poo poo on Jack Roush.

I was at Daytona for Austin Dillon's wreck and missed it because I was trying to video the leaders. Kind of glad I did.

You knew things were bad when Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wins a race and the crowd is to stunned to cheer.

I got real squirrelly about going to races after that Indycar wheel went in the stands at Charlotte and killed 3 people. (Which was a year after it happened at Michigan and killed 3.)

I talked to an old guy at Dega in 99 who said he had been right there at the stretch of stands that Bobby Allison went airborne at. Said all he could see in time was Bobby Allison's muffler system coming at him at 200mph and the car just deflecting off.

I'm glad Newman has his win from 2008, but he has had a lot of bad wrecks at plate tracks too. His kids still have a Dad, that's the main thing.

I watched the crashes of Bodine, Newman, Wheldon, Park, Earnhardt, McDowell, Dillon, Larson all live but for some reason the one that always sticks with me is Steve Grissom at Atlanta because I remember them showing how his car just loving annihilated the concrete wall.

he changed the channel right after the wreck because he thought grissom was dead and did not want me watching.

I saw that Grissom wreck live when I was a kid also. Thankfully it was clear that he was alright pretty quickly.

That Park/Foyt wreck still gets me, though. My jaw dropped when they came back from commercial and had the white sheets around Park's car.
