Probably take NASCAR another 20 years to invent overhead cams...

Well, that's the strangest thing I'v ever seen. Montoya slams into the jet drier and the jet fuel catches fire. Nice fire. Track's gotta be screwed.

Yeah, they're done. Too bad this race has been a bit of a bust.

It's hard to believe that a multi-million dollar enterprise would take that long to get some real firefighters to the scene.

They had settled down and were waiting for the last 10 laps to start wrecking again.

To be fair, the advent of fuel cells makes firehoses unnecessary. Usually the handheld extinguishers on the crash trucks are enough. Fire engines aren't accustomed to racing to a scene of a crash, are they?
