Luckily it was only the merch trailer. If that was the actual car hauler, the driver of the white truck would of gone straight into the car lift.

This happened Saturday night at Columbus Motor Speedway...



At about 2:30, David Lucas, the defending Crazy Compact track champion, takes two hard impacts; one in the driver's door, one into the end of the pit wall. He was okay, but the car that he won the title with (controversially, I might add) is nothing but a twisted beer can now. Shocked

I'll admit, I don't like the guy, but I wouldn't wish for that to happen on anybody.

I substitute the chosen track with one of my personal preference and this happens:



Then I discovered a funny little sound trick and have put it to hilarous use (in my mind anyway):

^Those race cars are absolutely beautiful.

I found a short clip of the Anthony Davidson wreck that Speed had. The real time and the sound makes the wreck much more surreal.

Found this old video of the game show "I've Got A Secret" from 1961. For anyone who doesn't know this game show, the rules are a contestant has a secret that only the host knows and a panel of four celebrities must figure out what their secret is using only questions with yes or no answers. Nickelodeon later made their own version of the show called "Figure It Out" which is now on again. Anyway, this episode from 1961, sees two gentlemen, originally known to the panel only as Mr. X and Mr. Y. However race fans know them very well. Mr. X is actually AJ Foyt, the winner of that year's Indy 500, and Mr. Y is Ray Harroun, who won the first Indy 500 50 years earlier.

I would put this in the NASCAR Hall Of Shame, but it be bumped up a little too much, so this will have to do. I found this on Curtis Key's team's website. It is their hero card for the year. This scared me with the amount of fail in it. From top to bottom, here's what I find wrong with it.

1) The picture with all their cars together. If look closely, the #46 and #47 cars have dents on the doors. Now, I could be wrong, but I'm assuming that the picture was taken at the beginning of the season, so why on Earth are there dents already in it?

2) That team logo. This doesn't have that much to do with the actual hero card, it's just not very pleasant to look.

3) The big car. There's a couple things with this, but I'll with the photoshopping. The team logo on the hood appears to be photoshopped on, and the number on the door is definitely photoshopped, and badly at that. One of the ways I can tell is...

4) The roof of the car. If you look closely, you can see part of the second digit. Even though the part of it is mostly just an outline, a line going through the middle of it, something that would not be on a 0. From what it looks like, it appears to be a 6, and on closer inspection of the door number, it appears there may be a lighter spot on the right side of the 0.

5) That Sprint Cup logo. They're not getting into Sprint Cup anytime soon. He has to park three cars just to run one car, and sometimes that car has to park.
