I see SO many very very nice cars that took many dollars and man hours to build wrecked because the driver gets back in the gas after a wheelie or the car spinning...WHY in the hell do guys do this?

The run is by all accounts over, you aint gonna win, your ET is not gonna get better, you aint gonna move up the qualifying ladder.

In the 1/8 mile world of heads up racing ITS A LOST CAUSE!

Why crash your car, blow up the engine at the very least? And at worst but the other driver in harms way?


I see this over and over. Whats the point here?

Prime example right here

Seems lately like driver confidence is at a all time high and driver skill is at a all time low..Way to many cars being wrecked these days.10 years ago you would only hear of a few wrecked all year,now a few get wrecked every weekend.

Mabie the fact that you can get BIG hp for half of what it cost 10 years ago has alot to do with it?

For some its called racing, for others it's trying to be a hero. No reason to get back in an out of shape, tire spinning race car in qualifying. Racing maybe.
