I didn’t even know who he was but happened to turn the TV on and saw the live coverage of the race, actually after the race had been cancelled.

I was struck by just how clearly the other drivers are saddened.

Wow, I’m always surprised when I see these horrible track crashes, and the drivers are not injured..I’m sorry, Dan W wasn’t so lucky.

RIP, Dan.

Now there’ll be endless replays of the accident by the morbid media.

I thought “breaking” was supposed to a racist term?

” Now there’ll be endless replays of the accident by the morbid media. “

Followed immediately by time-wasting Congressional hearings, and DEMANDS for a “Motor Racing Safety Act”....

“Cradle-to-Grave” is our motto....

I am not one to follow, but are the risks at such high speeds really worth it? Just like air shows?
It is all entertainment, but is this a more riskier form of spectator sport for the participant?

Some comments at a time like this, are classless and uncalled for.
