I was just about to post that. On YouTube, Facebook pages, Twitter, etc, it makes me so ashamed to share the earth with some of these people.

It is absolutely sickening, and I don't understand how human beings can sink that low.

A lot of people are brave from behind a keyboard.

After seeing this thread last night, I got on youtube and watched all the videos... horrible, horrible wreck.

One thing I really haven't heard is about the other drivers involved... anyone else get hurt?

There's no way to make motor sports completely safe, but they really do need to change these open wheel cars. Way too dangerous...

Horrible, horrific, crash. My prayers go out for his family.

Amazing how dangerous those open cars are. I remember when Ayrton Senna died in a wreck, he was my favorite when I was a kid.

Will Power, JR Hildebrand and Pippa Mann were all hospitalized but nothing serious I don't believe. Power was released, Hildebrand stayed overnight for evaluation and Pippa had burns to her hand I believe.

I guess open wheels should stick to road tracks and stay off the ovals. Road races are much more interesting anyways.

they should at least put some kind of cage above these guys head, so easy for some debris to hit them square in the face.

Seriously, or is this sarcasm? If so, what the f*ck does a guy dying in a tragic accident have anything to do with their anti-everything views?
