Those were pretty lame jokes, the only one that even made me smile was number 10.
Any lame excuse for a to bring up Dale Earnhardt’s death. You don’t mix tragedy and humor. It’s not funny.
Let’s do away with the restrictor plate tracks. Easy enough, just knock down the banking. You wind up with a flatter track, similar to the Brickyard. Great! Throw away the plates. But the Frances will never go along, thinking there’s some sort of appeal in the carnage of “big ones”.
To Trent and Carol,
FYI-The Top Ten isn’t always just for your amusement. It may also be there to make you think. Did you ever think of that? #1 was put there to reminder us that occasionally, in the midst of what these guys do for your entertainment, there is risk. Fortunately, over the years, that risk has lessened somewhat with newer and better safety inovations.
Aside from that, I defy either one of you to list for me a “worser thing to happen in restrictor plate racing” than #1.
what J.Meyer said, i can’t think of anything worse that has happened in a plate reace. actually i thought the top ten were right on and really didn’t see any humor
Well I loved Number 2
