Awww. :violin: , Useless. So much for "Ignored". You fail again. Plus, Useless, you've been busted too many times for anyone to believe you're not reading my posts, anyhow. It's just your excuse for cowering. Awww.

So it could be "Dumb Headlines" except it's too sad for frivolity. Headline(s) from several sources have said something like:
"NASCAR legend Bobby East fatally stabbed in California; police searching for suspect"

One referred to him as "NASCAR Icon"; others as "Top NASCAR Driver."

Well, he was a good USAC driver, and it's sad he got killed getting gas, but his NASCAR career was less than stellar. He never raced in the Cup (top) series, ran only 11 races in Xfinity (best minor league) with no top 10 finishes, and ran 30ish times in the truck series, with one top 10 and one pole.
At age 37, he was never going to be a star. Makes you wonder if those who wrote of his murder even follow the sport.

Ok so even if you don't like oval racing, you gotta enjoy this. Daytona, 2.5 mile high bank track. Ass is hauled at close to 200mph. Nascar officials apparently forgot that just a little rain on a paved surface with oil and scum build-up makes it like ice, so they were slow to put out the caution flag when it started to rain. Almost every effin' car in the race crashed. Not all were totaled, but almost everybody was in that one wreck.

Who knew it rained in Florida in the summer?
