Wow, I just saw the tail end of a replay of a practice crash yesterday......Smacked the wall at speed, destroyed the car, one of the worst I've ever seen........Driver, Mc Dowell walked, yes walked, away from it.........Car is a total mess, rolled, bounced, flipped.........It looked 10 times worse than Dale's fatal crash, and the driver walked away............Says a lot about the "safer" walls and present day car construction........MP

You see it just start to smoke/lose traction right as it goes out of view under the fence. Hard hit no doubt.

Nothing like wearing out a race car, during qualifying no doubt.

Now we have seen one of the hardest hits lately, and read the most retarded response ever, on the same thread..........MP

Looks like the "dog house" did its job well, front and rear of the car are total junk and the center just looks a little mis-shaped. UFB a guy could climb out after that wreck let alone walk away.

He may have gotten out and waved, but I guarantee you he had no idea who he was or how he got there. These drivers are so programmed to talk, smile and wave that instinct probably took over as soon as he woke up. The 00 car is hexed. Didn't Michael Waltrip's understudy wad that thing up exactly the same way at Fontucky? They had to wake him up via the radio and tell him his rig was on fire if I recall correctly...

Bloodshot eyes? Maybe. But he will have two nice seatbelt stripes up his chest where the belts were. I wouldn't be surprised if he's sitting on an ice pack from swollen nuts as well. His boys probably got bisected by the sub belt on that hit:)sphss
