The Funniest/Saddest Racing moments.

Two of my friends were racing down a street that ended with a ditch then some railroad tracks, this wasn't a serious race just for fun, my friends 2000 ford f-150 v8 VS my other friends 89 acura legend, so they started like a mile befre the raod turned into the ditch and railroad track. so they started, it was a close one right off the line then my friends ford started to win so my other friend pushed his car beyond it's breaking point and something got f*cked up with his brakes, but he didn't know it. they were nearing the ditch so my friend in the ford slowed down to a stop, but then my friend in the acura stepped on the brakes and they were shot, so he went flying into the ditch and hit his tranny on the tracks and crack his tranny and scraped about 20 pounds of grass and dirt on his under-body, so 4 hours later the tow truck came, that was a couple months ago, it's still in his parking lot. that was one of my stories, gimme all the stories you got guys, thanks

there is this road that runs right along with an airports landing strip, we go there to watch the 747's land, so when we get there we see this guys suped up supra, so his buddy is there with a video camera, and radio communication, so the guy turns his camera on and the other guy floors it, hes gone super fast, slows down for this corner and then turns around, i can hear them talking, they are waiting for a car to get off the road before he comes back, so then its go time, so he goes around this corner at like 80, theres a bit of a bump and his cars back end slides out, so he overcorrects and his back tires hit gravel, his car goes out of control and he ends up flying through a ditch, he must have went about 40 meters through the ditch, parts all over the ground where he went through, he was alright though

The saddest is when Dale Earnhart Sr. died. One of the best Nascar drivers ever. But then again we have Dale Jr.

I think he is doing bad because he switched his car with Waltrip and now Waltrip is kicking ass while Dale is dragging it

Well he's still ahead of Waltrip. I think it may be more cause of the gear change (having to use smaller gears, therefore running lower rpm) and also the smaller spoiler and newer tire compounds. The team change would also be playing atleast a small role too.

I think Tony Jr. was his cousin (crew chief or w/e) before he changed with Waltrip. I dont really know for sure.

Haha ya, now if only he'd get a little better more like last year. He had already won like 2 or 3 races by this time last year. I'm glad Kasey Kahne has picked up where he left off though. Maybe he'll do better and win more this year.

I think the saddest for me was Alex Zinardi losing his legs
