Where is the compasion and why is that not a conservative trait? I’m a capitalist and I understand the tremendous investment in this event and the pump it gives the sport – I’m all for that. What I’m saying is that I believe the sanctioning body missed an opportunity in decency to both hold the race and be sensitive to the personal loss/pain/injury that a number of their fans suffered at their venue just the day before. There was a better way, but in my opinion business drivers blinded them to it. Conservatism isn't a blood sport.

I have compassion for those people who were injured. And I think the sanctioning body acted stupidly following the Nationwide race. They suppressed all info about the injuries. All video and photos also. It was despicable. However, It was a freak. Not unlike fans being killed/injured by baseballs, bats, hockey pucks, etc. $hit happens. I, too, hope they can take this incident and make it safer for the fans. A few tweaks are all that is necessary.

Yer a puss. The “victims” who were able, went to the 500 on Sunday. You don’t hold a race for “sensitivities”. A butt load of non-”victims” paid a butt load of “capital” to watch their driver get some points at the “NASCAR Superbowl”, and have to be back to work Monday morning...they don’t take lightly to pissin’ away a $100 ticket.

Today, I purchased 3 nights lodging in Gadsden, AL for the Nationwide, and Sprint Cup races in Talladega. I support the sport.

The population in this area, at least 150 miles, squared could not fill the stands.

Mayhap, you ain’t a puss; mayhap you is a plaintiff’s attorney?

phuttt!

cheers, anyway:-)
