"can we talk about this NASCAR accident aka the Daytona 500 post"
Sun Feb-24-13 01:00 PM by bentagain

  

          

this shit is just getting under my skin

media outlets have been running with the Danica angle all week

and I would expect the ratings to see a bump

but let's be real people

these crashes are the reason people watch

what's bothering me

is every interview, narrative, commentary, etc...

these dudes are almost congratulatory that nobody died

well congratufuckinglations dipshits

you still sent 30 something people to the hospital

I mean, who are these people that go to these races knowing their health is at risk in doing so

if catching a baseball at a game meant I could die, I don't think I would go

watch NASCAR get the highest ratings ever after all of this BS

---------------------------------------------------------------

If you can't understand it without an explanation

you can't understand it with an explanation

But the GALL of them to not even consider calling the race...and admitting it well before the two most seriously injured people were upgraded...poor taste

he had leg injuries...no medical reason to do it....either endangering him or ruining a shirt

then i realized no body in the crowd was wearing a shirt.

i can not understand that shit at all. being in the crowd in the summer must be unbearable.

and wrecking all those parts all the time. even not in crashes, things just constantly wearing out and getting junked.


it's no fun at all to watch, the culture surrounding it isn't all that enticing and even if they're using a lot of proprietary parts and energy that aren't on regular markets it still seems wasteful to me.

Attendance and ratings were down in 2012.
http://aol.sportingnews.com/nascar/story/2012-11-21/nascar-tv-ratings-decline-fox-espn-tnt-daytona-500-olympics

You would think that if attendance was down that ratings would go up a bit but that hasn't happened.
NASCAR's attempted innovations, like the "Car of Tomorrow" (a boxier car meant for safer, closer competition used from 2007-12) and the Chase for the Cup (making a points system that only allowed the top 12 in the standings to win the championship even though races still feature 43 cars) have pushed away a chunk of the hardcore crowd.

Hell, some people probably miss when they called it the Winston Cup. Certainly they don't like this little no-winning hussy Patrick being shoved down their throats as a new star. Especially when they've got two developmental leagues full of drivers trying to push into the big time.

excited about this season. As someone who follows NASCAR and has been to an event, I will say it's impossible to appreciate it properly on tv. I disagree that crashes are the reason people watch. Maybe casual fans, but not folk who actually get into the racing aspect.

couple of seasons in the NFL

concussions and early onset of dementia

really don't compare to death

I feel like stories of drivers and even fans being killed appear every year

yet...

and as a boxing fan

there was even some talk about banning the sport because it was too violent

yet...

feel free to elaborate on the racism issue improving

are you talking about fans or drivers?

As a direct result of improved safety regulations instituted after that year.

>I feel like stories of drivers and even fans being killed
>appear every year

They don't. You're imagining this.

As a result of Saturday's crash, NASCAR will examine what happened to the catch fence and find ways to make improvements. Something went wrong with the tire tether (which is supposed to keep tires from leaving the vehicle) and the catch fence failed. NASCAR will make improvements, guaranteed.

>feel free to elaborate on the racism issue improving

Well, which are you talking about?

Eight drivers died in the 1950s and 1960s; five in the 1970s; thirteen in the 1980s; ten in the 1990s, eight in the 2000s

no deaths this decade...yet

the 70s is interesting though

only 5

You need to understand what you're talking about. Basically you've just said, "there was a death in AAU. Why doesn't the NBA do something about it?"

You saw that car that got cut in half Saturday. That guy casually got out of the car and walked away without a scratch. I'd say NASCAR is doing pretty well on the safety front.

but they don't spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars to drive their RV to a track, camp out for 3-4 days, sit in the hot ass sun drinking beer just to watch their favorite driver run into the wall on the third lap. Stop being dense.....

nowhere did I say I did

I actually don't know shit about NASCAR, or racing in general

the little exposure I do have is from the media coverage, hype, etc...

thus the reason for the post

but as 50 stated in a post above

I don't see any black people

I guess that's Okay for NASCAR, just not the other major sports

and like I said

what other sport are spectators in danger by attending?

I guess that's Okay for NASCAR, as long as nobody is dying...

anymore

MFers gettin real defensive

It was covered by all the major sports news outlets, and NASCAR has suspended him indefinitely. What more do you want to happen?

>no big deal

>
>BECAUSE it's NASCAR

Again, they suspended him indefinitely. What do you want? Shoudl he be shot dead by firing squad? Hanged in the town square?

>is there another sport where this wouldn't be a bigger story?

It's probably not a bigger story because nobody knows who he is. I mean, I follow NASCAR, but I don't even know who he is. Some back-of-the-pack nobody in the Nationwide Series.

What you're doing right now is equivalent to complaining about a racist remark made by somebody in the Arena Football League. Yes, it's bad, but it's the fucking Arena League.

payout for 3rd place (where she was) is $800,000
payout for 8th place (where she finished) is $300,000

not to mention differing point totals
she's still dead last in the points rankings
but she got more ESPN interview time than Jimmie Johnson (San Diego kid by the way)

i had a post up a while ago asking how/why is she even still relevant given that she's never won shit (after all these years)

it's like the Heat towel boys getting a check from nike because they wipe up lebrons sweat

i think jackman positions are kind of a "good ol boy" job
you get it from WHO you knoow
not just because yo're qualified

i really wonder how all their checks shake out tho:
jackman
tire man
windshield wiper guy
fuel cannister guy
sheetmetal guy
all the mechanics
machine shop guys

i'm sure a #1 (or even a pole position) in nascar is like a playoff win in NFL/NBA whereby you get team bonus checks

Steve Matchett, currently an F1 commentator on Speed, wrote a book about his life as an F1 mechanic. Not NASCAR, but the paths are similar.

because i know guys that do local circle track racing
in like ford pintos and whatnots
building engines in their garages

i wonder if they ride the coattails of a driver up through the ranks into NASCAR?

or if Rick Hendrick's grandson wants to be a jackman for a summer so Hendrick puts him on the NASCAR truck series crew?
