That is where a performance car flat-out whips your conventional daily driver.
Oh, so I guess you'd actually have to see cars as more than transportation. Sport or something. Nascar killed that in me...

Lol, then two people really suck at stunts. The guy behind the barrier should never have been there and Eddie Griffin doing his own stunts?

Absolutely.

NASCAR is not fun to watch, IMO. Check out SOLO Nationals, F1, IndyCar, ChampCar, LeMans; heck, even local dirt-track events are more interesting.

To me there isn't an uglier sight in the world of racing than the NASCAR road races.

Wally, any chance you'll make it to the Grand Prix of Houston this April?

As part of the company that sponsors the grand prix (budweiser), chances are I will be there, and will be taking pictures. I'll let you guys know for sure later down the road, but hopefully yes, I'm in.

I will say it's the weekend before I go to seattle to hang out with redbaron and the crew from POSDSM.

Actually...if it is a stunt then they're pretty darn good at it. The owner of the car (who just happens to be the guy who made the movie they were promoting) was way too cool and calm about the whole thing. Eddie Griffin didn't seem to be too terribly upset afterwards either.

If I had just wrecked a million dollar car I'd be a little worried about it.

As Kepa has already pointed out...they destroyed two $500,000 Porsches during the making of the movie.

I hope that every fool who slams on the brakes mid corner hits a wall and has to walk.
