As an auto-xer I agree with this. I think they made it up because the majority are pissed they can't afford wheel to wheel. I know I am.
I can't afford a car totaling off otherwise I'd be there (I mean road racing not HPDE's). There are good drivers and bad drivers everywhere, some are drawn to each for whatever reason. Money, fear of hitting walls, seat time, community, etc.
Saying one disipline is better than the other is kinda silly.
It's like saying a bull doesn't make a very good cat.
