I'm not sure if I am smarter than Sir Isaac, but I have the benefit of an education built on more than 350yrs of additional discovery based on empirical method than he had. Newton, along with Leibniz, Hooke and Huygens (who first coined the term) was wrong in this regard. This is freshman mechanics. As taught in every remotely reputeable university physics course (and high school as I recall) centrifugal force is ficticious. The concept of centrifugal force was based on intuitive perception of curvilinear motion.

By the way, if, by Newton's laws, you mean Sir Isaac Newton's three laws of motion, you're absolutely right standing by them, but none of them identify, nor support the concept of "centrifugal force".

Its a created or fictitious force, centripetal is the opposing for force to an object moving in an arc for whatever reason, string, tire track, camber force, whatever.

Both move from the axis, and the centripetal force won't cause the car to spin, it trying to pull the car off whatever line it is on.

 Centrifugal Force, in physics, the tendency of an object following a curved path to fly away from the center of curvature. Centrifugal force is not a true force; it is a form of inertia (the tendency of objects that are moving in a straight line to continue moving in a straight line). Centrifugal force is referred to as a force for convenience—because it balances centripetal force, which is a true force.

Two day event, first day won by a guy who won't race ovals. I thought Sunday's race was pretty good.

Guess flying into the catch fencing twice was enough for him. Can't say I blame him though. Scary crashes

Oh yeah, I don't blame him at all. A completely foreign form of racing and he almost dies twice. Time to take a hint. He's doing the right thing.
