This was on the STREET???!!!???

Un*goshdarn*believeable. Somebody needs to be in jail.

It's dangerous enough at the track. Spectators are killed injured and killed at tracks every year, notably Charlotte IRL several years ago.

They put one in the stands at an NCSC race in Lebanon, Or. a little earlier this year, and I was actually bit by a nose wing at Chico a few years ago.

That's like Fuzzy's death by meteor quote.

I'm failing to see the problem with putting a 4000 pound ground missile fueled by nitro and gas that can travel nearly 200 mph in under 6 seconds on a 25 foot wide asphalt path and lining it with people.

Seriously, what could go wrong?

Seriously, and only for the sake of argument:

If I'd been at Willamette Speedway in May, shot 84 at Mallard Creek (nice course not too awfully far from there) and then got killed by the race car going over the fence during the A main, I wouldn't mind if somebody said that, because that would be a pretty good day for me, all things considered.

If I get killed by some bozo hot rodding it in a parking lot, that's not OK...

To anyone who was offended by my joke, which admittedly was in poor taste, I apologize.  Sad

I have no problem with your speaking your mind. There's too much of that bull*feces*, libtard PC stuff nowadays.

Wasn't 'Offended', I took your point, and I was serious in what I said.

The driver involved released this statement today:

Quote
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  From The Troy Critchley Website.....

SELMER, Tenn. (June 18, 2007) "The entire AMS Racing Team is in deep mourning over the losses and pain suffered this weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with the individuals and their families during this difficult time. We are shocked and deeply saddened by this tragic accident, which is compounded by the fact that it occurred during a charitable event designed to raise money for disabled children. We offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the individuals that were injured or perished in the accident," team spokesman William Reid said Monday.

The team was asked to attend a charity event in Selmer, Tenn. to help raise money for the Cars For Kids charity and was told the organization had staged a charity car show for the past 18 years in which the drivers performed burnouts. The team sent its racing team to the event to display two racing cars -- a '93 Corvette and a '57 Chevy - and planned to have each vehicle perform an exhibition burnout.

A burnout is a demonstration in which the driver spins the tires to create smoke and noise to demonstrate the ability of the car. The driver involved in the accident, Troy Critchley, is an experienced professional driver who had performed more than a 1,000 exhibition burnouts without incident prior to Saturday.

The team arrived in Selmer on Friday June 15, 2007. On Saturday the team displayed two cars for the public to view, and, after displaying the cars, the crew was instructed to line up with other cars participating in the event. After the parade was completed, Selmer Police Officers blocked off the highway for the cars to perform the burnouts. The team understands that the Selmer Police Chief, Neal Burks, was present and in charge of crowd placement and blocking off the street.

The drivers understood that the roadway had been inspected and approved for the burnout exhibition. Before Mr. Critchley began the exhibition, two Selmer police cars traveled down the left and right of the roadway and instructed the crowd to move back. Mr. Critchley was signaled to start and he began to perform the burnout. After a straight start, the car skidded off the road. Mr. Critchley did everything humanly possible to keep the car on the road, but unfortunately, there was nothing he could do.

Mr. Critchley was taken to the Emergency Room and treated for injuries he sustained in the accident. He voluntarily submitted blood for testing to the Tennessee Highway Patrol and it was confirmed he had no alcohol or drugs in his system. The entire crew remained in Selmer on Sunday, June 17 to cooperate and provide information to Tennessee State authorities investigating the accident.

The team has agreed for the involved car to remain in the possession of the Tennessee Highway Patrol for examination. Mr. Critchley was not arrested nor has he been given any indication he will be charged with a criminal offense. The team is cooperating with the State of Tennessee and is currently investigating a number of factors that may have contributed to the accident including crowd control, safety precautions and the preparation and condition of the roadway.

I wasn't offended by the joke.

However, I'm offended that you felt the need to apologise.
