Hmmm....wonder if I should sit so close to cars racing at speeds up to 200+ mph. Sounds safe.

I wouldn't even go to a race at a larger track if I had to sit that close.

1) It's 10x more dangerous sitting that close


I'm guessing it's like 10,000x more dangerous since injuries/death will only happen in the first few rows

It probably is in general terms. The odds of dying at a NASCAR type racing event is probably around the same as dying from a lightning strike.

But yeah i don't sit in the front rows because it sucks from a viewing perspective.

I'm sure some disclaimer on a ticket stub will stop lawyers from persuing this. :thumbsu:

If you have to see through the fences at a race, you're way too low.

Particularly at te super speedways. Not only for safety but for actually seeing the race. If you are too low at Daytona or Talladega it's like

ZOOM
*58 seconds of silence*
ZOOM
*58 seconds of silence*
ZOOM
*58 seconds of silence*
ZOOM
*silence and skim rubber off top of your beer*

It's like having a TV timeout after every play during a football game.

Every sporting event ticket has a disclaimer on it. Including NASCAR tickets.


Exactly. Any lawsuit from a victim would be pointless as they wouldn't gain anything but knowledge.

I go to Bowman Gray multiple times per year and sit on the front stretch where there is no catch fence. Spectators are at their own risk, so pay attention. :)

80% of the people in that video didn't even watch the wreck they looked to their right. Gotta keep your eye on the cars wrecking, no matter what.

You can write whatever you want on the back of a piece of paper. Doesn't make it legally binding as Happy Panther stated earlier.


It's more to keep most people from even looking into legal recourse.
