    I believe he was fully responsible. He was too proud (it was reported he thought the straps would interfere with his head movement) to wear a HANS device, which probably would have saved his life.

    I'll go as far as 2/3's responsible with you. Either way we are on the same thought line.

    Well I just come across a nascar race tonight on tv. The Coca-Cola 600..was shocked to see mustang bodies..reminded me of the 90's pontiac grandprix..but it was cool to see the attempt at it..
    I too, with many friends and family ditched nascar many years ago..actually was a combo of Toyota cars and that jimmy Johnson winning always lol.

    Just got my first diecast of the new body. Looks way better than the Fusions. So glad Stewart Haas switched. Their Darlington tributes they unveiled will look even better. Shame they cannot make the Orange Vanilla Coke that was raced a few weeks ago

    Why they implement the Euro package without the sequential turn signals?

    You're wrong about the BBC statement.
    $26 Hemi and the Boss429 were the culprits that caused restrictor plates to first show up.
    Nothing out of GM's had anything to do with it.

    The in the late '80's, Ford's dominance with the Cleveland/Windsor caused the dreaded plate to stay.
    This was in fact because GM had nothing to compete with.
    The GM teams were running their respected cars so loose that they became a hazard to fans and fellow racers.

    Hear, hear! None of those things are a Ford, or a Chevy, or a Toyota. A tubular frame with a 358 V-8 and a body kit.

    Same with any form or motorsport these days. Remember Force's Ford engine?

    The Supra in xfinity looks 10x better than the Camry. Only a matter of time before they switch too.!
