"a vehicle participating in the drag racing event lost control and left the runway, crashing into parked vehicles and spectators nearby."

So I take it Alec Baldwin's production company was running this event?

Too soon?

Because of course Texans would think calling driving around in circles a race war is clever

I'd be totally into seeing NASCAR and formula1 both run the indy500 simultaneously, CW for nascar and CCW for formula 1. The winner, or last car operating wins it.

According to Kerrville Police, one child, a six-year-old male died at the scene. Another child, an eight-year-old boy, was pronounced deceased after being transported to Peterson Regional Medical Center in Kerrville.

Weird wording. The six-year-old is described as a "male" while the eight-year-old is described as a "boy." Couldn't they both just be called "boys?"

Well, these are casualties of a race war, so one of them was probably black.  The wording helps us know which.

In other states they may have never been born to die at a race track, but this was Texas.

Is that how Texas drag racing works- in circles?

Also, of course it was a Mustang

No crowd should be allowed around race cars without barriers, or very large cordoned off sections with jumps and corners. World rally and the Baja California races proves this. We need to get the stupid and drunk people off the sides of the track.

Two people were treated and released at the scene, say Kerrville Polie.

That might as well be a person's name.

/ Kerrville Polie to the courtesy phone.

Crowd at a safe distance?
Barriers?

From the pictures it appears there was about 10 feet of grass separating spectators from the race. It was never a question of IF this was going to happen. Hope those kids enjoyed the game of Russian Roulette they were forced to play.

Do you think any Black folk went to that Texas shindig? I am the whitest person on the planet and I would not go anywhere near that place.

Then again, people dumb enough to stand right next to a race track dying could just be considered a form of natural selection.

They dont have to worry about this stuff at rallycross because nobody races mustangs at rallycross. 
Kinda like how you never see people get mauled at dog shows because nobody brings pitbulls to dog shows.

I'll never die at a drag race. Guaranteed.

Or a monster truck rally.

I was going to give Subby some hell for stooping so low as to call it a race war when two childrens died.

Imagine my jaw drop when I RTFA.

Apologies in advance, Subby.

Also, WTF Texas?

This was guaranteed to happen.
Been involved in several forms of racing for 20+ years.
I wouldn't have been involved, or even near this event.
And yes, I have a mullet!

Well obviously the 8 year old had already self identified as a 'boy' but the 1 year old wasn't old enough articulate his preferred pronouns yet so they used a less loaded description. Probably should have said natal-male or inseminating-person to be even safer.

Kerrville and Fredericksburg are right where the Hill Country starts to get seriously Trumpy, which is a shame because the countryside is pretty there. I'll still drive through during wildflower season, but I ain't stopping.

Notoriously bad for hooking. Never understood why people favored the ford 9" over the GM 8.5/8.625" 10 bolt.

Women are already being referred to as "people who menstruate", and AFAB is a thing so it is not as if it can be completely dismissed out of hand.
