Dale Earnhardt Sr. Dies in NASCAR Race Dale Earnhardt Sr. once said, “You can’t let one bad moment spoil a bunch of good ones.” Dale Earnhardt Sr. had a lot of good moments during his NASCAR career. February 18th, 2001 is the most important date in history because Dale Earnhardt Sr. passed away while finishing his last lap at the Daytona 500 NASCAR race. A lot of people were heart broken by the devastating news, especially the people in the stands who witnessed the crash.
However, off the track, friends and fan described him as thoughtful and generous (Spencer 1). Some people said that Earnhardt was too rough on the track, others blamed Marlin, no one had a clear answer, they all just had their own ideas of what really happened that day on the track. Spectators had many of their own opinions on the cause of the crash, however everyone agreed on one thing: there needed to be a change in the way racing was done. “The loss of this legend created shock across the board.
A crash like that at just 30 miles per hour could cause unequivocal damage to the car as well as loss of life. What Bragg says about how a car, much loved, is repaired after such a traumatic experience, can and does change your outlook on that car. It will never be the same as when you first got it, a part of it is forever gone, a part of you is gone. Sitting or even driving after a crash like Braggs went through will always remind you of your experiences with the car, the endeavors you went through to attain your favorite car. Moreover the loss and pain of seeing your car damaged so truly takes a toll on
If not death, serious injuries were an absolute in every jockeys life. Some even experienced more than two hundred falls in their life (CITATION). Due to little rules and regulations, once a jockey was injured during a race, little was done to tend to the racers injuries. Along with the lack of immediate attention, very few jockeys had insurance and earned an insignificant amount of money. The lack of money and insurance often lead to many hospitals turning the injured jockey away, refusing to treat them (CITATION).
Racing is very physically demanding for the horse, and yearlings are still not fully developed. Extensive physical work at such a young age often leads to joint problems as an older horse, and even extreme physical damage as a young horse. Hundreds of horses die every year from racing-related injuries alone. 4 year-old filly Premedya died last year at the Preakness Stake from a fatal fracture to her leg. Another famous racehorse, Homeboykris, died from a heart attack on the same day.
And a lot had occurred at the same time as the crash has happened. The most deadly crash has occurred not in formula 1 but in the Le Mans 24 hour race in 1955. The crash occurred when a jaguar had slowed down so fast that the Austin Healy that was behind it swerved to avoid the crash and it hit a Mercedes and as a result that sent it flying over the crowed. About seventy seven were killed on the spot with a lot decapitated and another seventy seven badly
The first Indy 500 in 1911 changed several things for Indiana. This event made it more of a tourist area because of the new race track. Not only did it change Indiana, it changed racing. The first Indy 500 made racing with cars instead of horses more popular. It changed Indiana and car racing for the better. The Indianapolis 500 is known as “The Greatest Spectacle In Racing” because of Alice Greene who coined the phrase in 1955 (Indianapolis). Since the inaugural race, this racing event, has became surrounded with rich and great tradition.
This means that the drivers have to go fast or else they will be hated by all the other drivers. Theodore then shows the consequence of this, which is a deadly car crash. The driver, a plant worker, finally gets an escape from the machines through death. This illustrates the societal ill of “Highway: Michigan”.
Sure, their car might not go as fast but you are still just sitting in a seat with your foot pushing down on the pedal and making a turn every once in awhile. If anyone can do it then should it really be categorized as a sport. NASCAR is an activity not a sport.

In Crash, ideology is screaming that the audience needs to open their eyes to the harsh reality of today 's challenges and make a change. Crash begins and ends with the same car crash, however, what leads us to this crash is a few major collisions caused by actions or reactions between different people throughout the film. The first collision is found in the life of a African American detective, Graham, who says the first lines of the movie, "It 's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you.
Right from the go I was behind and off the pace and even though I was learning by running in last place all the time I was ashamed to be there because it was something that made me feel like I wasn’t worth being out on that race track. 5 years later I am one of the top young guns in my racing division among the NASCAR sanctioned tracks in Ontario because I didn’t let vulnerability hold me down I pushed through and did what I wanted
