Athletes

What if I told you that these guys lift weights every day, practice every day, have 26 "games" every year with a 10 "game playoff", have to handle a 3200lb car, wear a full body fire suit every time they get in the car, lose as much as 10% of their body weight every race, race side-by-side at 200+ mph inches apart, survive wrecks that would kill a man, there are only 40 or so of these guys in the whole world, and I could go on and on. Jr had 2nd degree burns over a large part of his body after his fuel line ruptured and caught fire, and he still raced the next weekend.

I'm back

All I can say is that if you ever see a race in person, then it will be your favorite sport to watch in person, even more than football and hockey. If it really is just all about making left turns then why isn't everyone doing it? Why is there so much money involved in it? The other thing I like about the sport is that the drivers are so accessable. I've met several drivers and they are all really down to earth. MOst of them, except Gordon, are about as ******* as the fans are. I still say that these guys are exceptional athletes. People like to say that wrestlers are athletes. Well, everything they do is fake or choreographed. It takes more than bulging muscles to be an athlete even though it helps. It takes the ability to make split second decisions, quick reflexes, and anticipation. I must be an athlete- I have all those qualifications (especially the bulging muscles)... lol.
