Those folks who had to drive home after the race, how tired were they? Driving tired puts a lot of people at risk for accidents.
What about the drivers? Staying up all that time and still racing after 2+ in the morning? More chance for errors during the race. And don't get me started about this form of racing. Is Nascar waiting for someone to get killed again before making some changes? And I am not just talking about the drivers but the fans too.
It is no wonder we have less fans in the stands.
Am I missing something or am I just getting old.
