Likely no........................Baileyton is local to me and is just a little outlaw bracket track that has been there 60 years or better. Most people who race there hardly ever race at any other tracks. Lots of home built, pretty dangerous stuff, that has no business going as fast as it does...........Very slick, very bumpy, very narrow, Armco rails to the finish line, bluffs on either side after that and trees at the end. Not many nice cars these days, because the shutdown and return road will destroy a low sitting car...................None of that stuff reduces the tragedy here, but it was something that was bound to happen there.

Prayers for the young mans family

Monte

Most of us are numb to the dangers after doing this shit for so long, but if you really stop and think about many of us blasting down a dragstrip at crazy MPH in what basically amounts to a spot-welded sheet-metal structure with wheels on it . . . well, it's just very easy to be lured into the false sense of security in a car.

Just an fyi for you, when you go look you won't see Obama or Bush.
