1:57 I don't think the roof flaps could do anything about that.... The car just happened to angle down and hit the ground

Ryan Newman has to be the unluckiest luckiest driver out there. He has been in multiple of these incidents over the years where he has gone airborne or flipped, and he has walked away from every single one and is still racing. Or I hope to see him out there again after his incident in Daytona. Good to hear he’s doing ok

Damn I remember watching most of these crashes on television and this stuff literally was my childhood and I just tear up because this stuff was my primary form of entertainment and it was so much so I could name the entire 2010 roster of drivers. That Carl Edward's crash will remain as one of the most memorable crashes to me.

I just love how they showed racing at Talladega and then you just see smoke on the backstretch and Ryan Newman’s wing is the only thing that you can see popping out of there.

McDowell's 2008 headon crash at Texas is still on everyone's hearts even in 2021.

man if you’ve never seen nascar races in person you don’t know how crazy fast these cars go. i went to dover speedway when i was like 12 years old and the cars were going so fast it was rocking the stands every time they went past. my dad wouldn’t even let me get close to the fence because these guys were going no exaggeration like 170mph. good times.

You can’t appreciate how fast they’re all going until you see how long it takes them to stop

You need to find some footage of the early '60s crashes from places like Daytona when they were just learning how to run those speeds. Or Darlington in the '50s & '60s when cars went clear out of the "ball park" -- like the car that cleared the turn one guard rail and took out the flimsy press room built on stilts on the the other side which gracefully collapsed. I watched in awe at Riverside in '65 when Ford-driving AJ Foyt, at the end of the one mile straight, discovered he had no brakes as the tight, sweeping right-hand final turn approached while flat-out. He turned into the infield, which meant going over an embankment, and proceeded to violently crash end over end. It was amazing he wasn't killed. He was badly busted up with many injuries, but recovered enough to drive the Indy 500 four months later.
