really great finish

I'm surprised they only needed one attempt, but that was a good race all around. Even if it ended up having a big one just before the end, that was, as BNBL put, a wreck 12 laps in the making and you're fine with that, because they put it all out there.

It was a different media environment obviously, and it happened in a different part of the track where there were no stands.

But someone correct me if I’m wrong, didnt they just take Dale Earnhardt to the hospital as a formality? Like he died on impact and it was VERY obvious to the first responders, right?

I think that was the case. First responders normally are not allowed to declare someone deceased, but they can use "Injuries not compatible with life", which I'm pretty sure they used for Dale.

I thought I was desensitized to this kind of poo poo but I just watched that clip and literally screamed JESUS CHRIST at that loving impact

That was my coworker's reaction. I remember that one when it happened and it was to the extreme.

Initially, Earnhardt's looked pretty tame as far as race car crashes go. That one killed him and Newman walks away from this one. Baffling.

The ones that are tame looking tend to be the most dangerous. Dale hit the wall at pretty much full speed in the pre-HANS, pre-SAFER era. It's possible that either one of those things (as well as him not loosening his seatbelts on the last lap) saves his life, especially HANS.

Cars going airborne, while bad and can end up like this today, usually are "good" in so far that a lot of speed gets scrubbed off mid-air, meaning the impact tends to be lessened. It means gently caress all if someone hits you at 200 MPH because they have no time to react though.

Me neither, it made it feel like the safety crew was slow getting there.

Same. Thankfully, high octane, liquid gasoline is not that prone to ignition (as THM pointed out), but in the context of everything, it was "OH gently caress HURRY".

Also, I think it was, admittedly, fortunate that it happened yesterday instead of Sunday. Sunday you still have all the security theater bullshit going on, yesterday it's gone.

It's probably the latter. 5 lugs is a better show but 1 lug is a better design for a race car in every other respect. I will miss 5 lugs though.
