It very quickly escalated into a discussion on the dangers of NASCAR, and someone (correctly) pointed out that, when NASCAR has had a fatal crash, the league has done everything in their power to prevent further fatalities.
Don't believe me? Ask Austin Dillon.
But, to demonstrate the complete idiocy (or it could be trolling) of the generic American sports fan, I produce to you this gem from "CDWag14":
"The fact that you think NASCAR is safe a week after the death of Justin Wilson and the bringing of a law suit against Tony Stewart for the incident with Tony Ward Jr. shows either an incredible amount of ignorance or a level of tone deafness that borders on incredible. Read for yourself. http://espn.go.com/racing/indycar..."
Justin Wilson's death was in an Indy car -- and there are actually editorials and calls for the end of the Indy Car series because the open-cockpit cars cannot be made safe.
Tony Ward Jr. was a sprint car, moron.
