    Daytona 500 Wreck

    Leading on the final lap, Ryan Newman gets bumped. The result is pretty bad.

    $1,200 is not enough.

    I saw that. It looked even worse than Dale Earnhardt's! Hoping for a better outcome.

    Yes, Dale's crash actually appeared to be minor. But, that was before the head restraint system was put in place.



    Watching this crash, I see a lot of energy being dissipated over an extended period of time. That's a good thing. These cars are designed to keep the drivers safe.

    Here's to hoping the engineering did its job.

    That was just a horrible crash.
    Hoping he is okay but if you noticed they kept the cameras away when they removed him from wrecked car.

    Even with all the safety built into these cars a human body can only take so much.

    A lot of race fans were upset how quickly Denny Hamlin celebrated but I don't know how much he knew about the wreck at that moment he finished the race.

    He was much more somber at the award ceremony.

    From what I recall Dale didn't use the HANS restraint.

    Correct. I believe it was optional back then and not very much understood like it is now.

    But he insisted that his sons use it. Dale, Jr. had at least 20 concussions.

    Maybe Trump's presence jinxed it?
