Default Did anyone see the crash today at the nascar qualifying at the TX Speedway?

I was watching Formula 1 and got too lazy to get up to change the channel and the nascar qualifying is on and holy **** that crash was unbelievable I can't believe he walked away from that he hit the wall at like 180 mph and then flipped so many times that was ridiculous.

It was a spectacular (horrific) crash. Thankfully McDowell was able to walk away. Damn, he practically slammed into the wall head on.

Off topic, are you close Texas Motor Speedway? That would be an awesome race to watch.

Ya that reminded me of when Dale Earnhardt hit the wall and was killed. This guy hit the wall just like Dale did, and if that never happened to Dale then this lucky guy may have not walked away from this wreck. With the improved safety features on the car and the reinforced cushioned walls.

On a side note: My 21st birthday two years ago, I got to drive a Nascar around TMS for 18 laps. OMG talk about a rush.

^ Dale's wreck wasn't head on like that one and his car didn't flip several times either. His crash looked pretty much like any other one.

I knew it didn't flip, I thought it hit more head on than that.

I stand corrected.

Wow his crash was nothing compared to the one last night that makes it even crazier that the guy last night walked away from his vehicle.
