As many of you know, NASCAR hothead Kyle Busch intentionally crashed Ron Hornaday at this weekend's Camping World Truck Series race. If you haven't seen the video, see for yourself what this moron did:
This is some crazy shit. He's a loose cannon, he's unsafe, he shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel of a race car for the foreseeable future. He intentionally, and maliciously drove another car in to the wall at around 130 mph. After the death of Dan Wheldon there were countless quotes about how people have forgotten or tend to forget the dangers associated with racing. The risk of death isn't as palpable as it once was. But all of those drivers recognize the chance of death when they get in the car and race on that edge, they do it because they love it and respect the sport. Kyle Busch clearly doesn't respect racing, and doesn't respect the sport. He's a selfish prick who feels he can wreck whoever he wants when he gets mad; because to him - that's racing. Sure, he has talent behind the wheel of a NASCAR and sets great lap times, wins races, and sponsors love him. The risk of death in racing should only come from unstoppable accidents while on the limit - like in Las Vegas. If you have a driver that is actively responding to situations by wrecking people he shouldn't be near your sport, and shouldn't be near your other drivers. Maybe not banned for life, but for at least a season. Baseball has a harder stance on performance enhancing drugs then NASCAR has on intentional wrecks which could KILL multiple people. In baseball, when you are found using banned substances the penalties are as follows:
"First failure to comply: 15 to 25 day suspension and/or a fine of up to $10,000
Second failure to comply: 25 to 50 day suspension and/or a fine of up to $25,000
Third failure to comply: 50 to 75 day suspension and/or a fine of up to $50,000
Fourth failure to comply: minimum one year suspension and/or a fine of up to $100,000"
Get it together NASCAR and make sure he's banned for more than just one weekend; before he kills someone.
