    That was the least of Earnhardt's problems.

    His belts were mounted totally wrong for comfort, and he wore an open face helmet. Both of which were crazy.

    A lot of G forces in that hit.

    Thank God for Haans and full roll cages!
    This.

    Without them, he'd be dead. No doubt about it.

    I'm surprised at that.

    I honestly suspected he had been killed, having gone through this countless times before.

    But he must have serious injuries to his body, or he wouldn't be at the hospital.

    Then I expect you to get upset at Hamlin for fist-pumping his victory AND for driving his car through the grass well after this bad wreck. He shouldn't have celebrated after taking advantage of that crash to win the race, now should he?

    Seriously, man. You've got a big, fat double standard going right now about outrage.

    Whatever. I hope Newman survives and makes a full recovery.
    I am as anti-45 as it gets. It wasn't funny or appropriate. Let's move on.

    He didn't know. Perhaps you didn't see him hug his daughter after he learned of the crash.

    So you're ready to stop with your virtue signaling? Good to hear.

    Yup. That's for sure. The squishy meaty driver bit always loses in collisions with metal.

    They had no idea the crash had resulted in injuries to Newman from what I heard - I didn't even watch the end.

    Seriously, man. You've got a big, fat double standard going right now about outrage.
    No, I've just been around motorsport culture for a looong time, and know that joking in a time like this is very disrespectful to fans. Looks like you're looking for any excuse to defend an insensitive joke that you refuse to retract for the stupidest of reasons.

    Should we all have made jokes about California when Bryant's helicopter went down? It's the same thing.

    I can't believe this has to be explained to you.
