Looked like a fighter jet turning hard right, but into a wall.

See, now that's why I prefer F1. They know how to make left AND right turns. :D

That looks about like the crash that killed Dale Earnhardt.

Given that he hit that wall almost head on, probably still doing 150mph, I think it is an amazing demonstration of the vehicle's integrity

Plenty of crumple in the front area - certainly helped it.

That's the area of the car that I'm building that gives me most concern.... especially given it has a front mounted fuel tank.

Some people think car racing is stupid.
I wonder how many of these people watch baseball or golf.

Sad thing is, I hardly ever sit and watch any sports.. I got better things to do for entertainment..

Folks that think it is silly don't understand it.

REMEMBER ... 90+% of folks in the world think wooden boats and their owners are idiots.

rbgarr- actually the Earnhardt crash was not NEARLY as severe as that! :(
