When I was a kid I always said the guy in last place should crash his car on purpose at the finish line to overshadow the attention the first place driver gets >:)

With the stupid rules changes they've made over the past few years, they have set up this scenario at the end of every large track race. It puts fans in danger. If this had happened a fraction of a second earlier that camera man would be dead.
This isn't racing anymore.

#3 Yep at 0:55 you can see him backing away from the fence. I am surprised they let anyone that close to the track,
this isn't rally racing.

I'm astonished that nobody, here or on the web in general, even asked what happened to the driver. All the coverage is about a fan who was injured. It wasn't until the fourth article I read that I found this: "Dillon amazingly survived the wreck."
In case anyone's interested...

#5 My mistake. I thought the subtitle about the amazing safety built into these cars would indicate the driver was ok. O:)

It's like they were trying to recreate this video game cover image:

Seriously though, NASCAR is so fucking stupid... even I as a first degree 'Murica fanboy cannot stand up for it. It's the Meth of motor racing: High risk, low reward and a lot of white trash. WRC and Rally Cross are more like Acid or Ecstasy, where at least the risk is proportional to the reward of the experience you get out of it.
