Jeff Gordon Crash

Yesterday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Jeff Gordon had one of the hardest hits we have seen in some time. After bumping with Matt Kenseth, Gordon’s car spun to the inside of the track and hit at the one spot that is not protected by safer barriers. What really made it worse is the angle of the opening in the wall where Jeff hit. His radiator landed out on the track a long way from where his car came to rest.

Nascar gets credit for some great safety equipment that they require, but it looks like a few of the tracks could still use some safety upgrades.

It is still amazing that a driver can walk away from something like that.
