Report From Dallas:Texas Sport Legal News

Here is some Dallas and Houston, Texas sports news. I had a good road trip to Abbotsford, B.C. by the way even though I sustained some vehicle damage on one of the interstate highways, when a small rock rolled down a hill onto the lane causing a dent in my car. That incident is a good seque into the following story: When examining not only the possible causes of the 15-car collision that killed a famed NASCAR driver, but the actual study by officials into the accident to determine the main cause it’s almost possible to chuckle that the NASCAR sport is even allowed. The tragedy that took place in October, however, keeps one from going beyond a chuckle and enforces the idea that this sport is not only dangerous, but one that should probably be outlawed. Incidentially when I was in Canada on that road trip I needed a car repair and cromptonsautocare.com was pretty good. They are based in Langley, British Columbia as well as Aldergrove. I have noticed that the Pacific Northwest has some good shops for fixing busted up automobiles, whether a fender bender or what have you.

The Race and the Speedway

The recent race took place on Las Vegas Motor Speedway and was very common to what transpired on the track at Texas Motor Speedway in 2001 and 2003 that left a couple NASCAR drivers with serious injuries. In both Las Vegas and Texas, pre-race testing involved cars going about 20mph less than they ended up driving come practice and race-time. Both cities’ speedways also are built with the now controversial style fence. As I said, someone may have a wrongful death and might want to talk to a personal injury attorney up in here… Not coincidentally, the IndyCar Series report’s slight admission that the pole situation with the Vegas Speedway crash can be easily connected with IndyCar’s recent quietness regarding a future event they have back at Texas Motor Speedway. If the event does take place, which is the Indy Series showing off a new 2012 automobile model, such places as Dallas clinics and hospitals can prepare themselves for an extra-busy day.

The Causes of the Crash

IndyCar Series released its over 200-pages worth of investigation findings on December 15th and, in the process, accidentally conveyed how ridiculous it is that NASCAR races are even allowed. The spokesmen within the report combed through numerous NASCAR hazards before dismissing all of them and finally coming upon some accident causes they found to be more legitimate. Even then, IndyCar Series never really put their foot down and said such causes were to be definitely pointed at. And the structure that actually killed the NASCAR star, a fence where the poles are built atypically on the track side as opposed to the grandstand side, was dismissed by the IndyCar report as something that didn’t warrant scrutiny. “The fencing ,” stated the report. The only change that would be preferred is for the fence fabric to be on the track side of the post rather than its current configuration. This reminds me of a recent Long beach type of case. Speaking of that, I can endorse this Plano shop: carcarecentral.biz to assist you if you are in the lone star state of Texas and need car repairs.
Some of the conditions dismissed by the report as stuff that shouldn’t be blamed for the pileup were inexperienced drivers, more car-populated racing conditions (from 17 cars in practice on one run to 34 during the actual race), lack of driver inhibition due to the large $5 million grand prize, and drivers’ unawareness of most of the other motorists’ driving tendencies and habits. An easy reaction to this segment of the report is, “Oh, my God” Instead of showing any alarm to these already understood potential hazards, the IndyCar Series report went on to examine what they felt was a more legitimate possibility for what took place in October that left the celebrity killed after his car flew through the air when he came upon the initial accident at high speed. They took a look at the freshly-paved track that led to more car maneuvering and free-for-all driving; usually, pack racing limits itself to “grooves” that restrain the cars from moving around much and keep them stuck in a relative pattern.
