I wish I could quantify every piece of safety equipment that plays a role in these crashes.

First vid: "Ooooh, that's way worse than last year."

Methinks it may be time for drag strips to install Steel And Foam Energy Reducing walls.

It's a shame that Stewart will probably never live down the fact that he caused that huge clusterfark at Talladega.

No footage of Romney's campaign...

0:55 of the Petter Solberg video is why a navigator is important in rally racing.

at the 4:16 mark, you can see the 13 bump the 55 and that thrusts the 55 forward in colliding.

Some of those videos were a bit of a drag.

Not a car racing fan. But that Tony Stewart crash is intense.

Drag racing crashes are all skippable.

The 13 does push the 55 hard to the front, but not into Stewart. It's up to Stewart and his spotter to know that the 55 had a huge run on the inside line so he could block a little safer, not just turn dead left into them. I guess one could argue it's the last lap and anything goes, but in this case, it was just sort of a knucklehead move, especially when it took out the entire field.

On the last video of the funny car boomer it was Todd Lesenko's third of the year including two at the US Nationals in Indy. He's getting good at piloting nitro time bombs.
