In Kimoa we believe that, regardless of what occurs outside, life is what happens within. Freedom is a state of mind, and limitations are too. We always chose freedom. We believe that if something frightens you a little, but it makes you happy, you should go for it. That's the essence of adventures.

the last time i saw someone die in a race it was because they got hit in the face with a tire. needless to say this is awesome news.

this is sarcasm, btw, i am not a bad enough poster/person to legitimately hope for someone to die. what in the absolute gently caress, nascar

I'd expect that out of sophomore season Jocko Flocko.

And I don't even think the lugs are even on the "honor system", per se. I think it's literally just "put however many you want on".

Even if it were an 'honor system', honor systems would never work in any competitive event, NASCAR or otherwise.

IIRC, SRA made a post that you could have 3 or 4 lugs on that'll keep the wheel on securely if you balance it out correctly. I don't know we'll see if we get random tires coming out of the hub causing big crashes.

I drove with only 2 of 4 lugs on one of my tires for a while and the wheel never fell off, so I know it's possible to not have a few. OTOH, I wasn't going 190+ MPH so whether it's a good idea to go without a lug nut or two at those speeds...well it seems like a bad idea, anyway.

Keeping in mind there are 4 tires on 43 cars. Only one has to fail for there to be a pretty big problem. Maybe it'll be alright but it'll be hilarious if it isn't.

in the case of danica, i guess she does deserve some praise for not just full-throttling into the wreck. you could call that progress.
