If life is made up of a series of moments, then one of its pleasures is remembering them, seeing them through new eyes, watching with a satisfied, “I remember when that happened.” This week, our staff rolled out some of our favorite racing videos featuring moments that are dramatic, memorable or just downright ridiculous. There were many more than just five, so let us know if you like this edition and would like to see more of our favorites!
1. Why we don’t need the Chase, reason No. 462
Without a Chase, six drivers went into the final race on 1992 with a chance to win the title. And it wasn’t decided until the bitter end.
2. Wait, what just happened?
Well, this, apparently…
3. “You go first.” “No, after you.” “No, I insist… after YOU”
This NHRA staging battle shows what a mind game racing can be.
4. Excitement comes in all forms
Minor league race? Don’t tell these guys that. Some have become familiar faces since this instant classic.
5. Things get crazy
Like plate racing or hate it, it’s around because of things like this, which goes from crazy to scary in an instant (luckily, there were no serious injuries).
