r.a.s.n.ers...

I have read as much of the anti-Ward postings as I can handle!  Guess
what guys and gals, this has happened before, and as long as cars are
zipping around racetracks at 195mph, it will happen again.

I don't think there is an intelligent knowledgeable race fan on the
planet that jumped up and down for joy when those two cars darted for
the outside wall.  Even the Earnhardt detractors were cringing and
hoping the guy was unhurt.  

This is a part of the game.  There is not a driver in the series,
excepting the rookies who have not been around long enough to join the
"caused a wreck club," that has not caused a multi-car tangle.
Unfortunately, this one claimed 19 cars.

I love the geniouses that claim Ward was running on the apron on
purpose.  Where do you come from?  HE MADE A MISTAKE.  How many laps
previous had he NOT run on the apron?  How many times previous have we
seen cars hit the flat and take off?  You think you are the only one who
knows what happens when this happens???  Come on!

I wish the accident did not occur.  It did.  What should we do?  Suspend
Ward?  Laughable.  We should suspend EVERY driver that causes a
wreck...LOL  Blame NASCAR for the plates?  Remember 1987?  Bad idea.
Thankfully the drivers have a strong cage to protect them...the fans
only have that wheel fence.  

Don't take it personally folks.  Ward was not sitting in his car
plotting how to take out half the field.  It was a mistake.  Like a
previous poster said, I'll bet this guy loses sleep over this one.  He
is one of the most genuinely likeable and honest drivers out there
today.  He has been involved in a few wrecks before, but he is not the
worst "wreck causer" on the circuit.  He does belong up front.  He has
run there before and when the team gives him a good car, he can be a
factor for the win.  Unfortunately today, he made a small mistake that
had huge consequences...

Yeah looked to me like he got on the apron and the car went up into
Dale. To bad! Dale had a good run going too! Dale has also caused his
share of accidents. Wasn't the race I expected to see!

FINALLY...After weeding thru all these "WARD BASHING POSTS", someone has the common sense to
actually see the wreck through rational eyes!
THANKS Charles...
I bet there isn't one driver, at one time or another that hasn't been the cause (not intented) or
been blamed for a wreck! I can't fathom a driver saying to himself "Gee, think I'll take out about
15 cars in this race, I can afford the bad PR and I may enjoy slamming and banging into all of the
AND not to mention the hard ass wall"
IT HAPPENS...Stay tuned for the next one cause there will be one, all you can do is hope and pray it
doesn't!
