Short track racing: it's one of the things that powers the motorsports industry in America. Short tracks produce the best racing there is, and it's even better on a Saturday night. One of the most famous short tracks is Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The track has its share of wrecks, causing drivers' emotions to boil over, driving some over the limit. We've seen everything at this track, from bare knuckle brawls, to NASCAR driver Darrell Wallace Jr. being escorted off the track.
Well, you haven't seen anything. Driver Derek Stoltz wrecks Mike Robertson in turn 2 in the closing laps of a classic Saturday night showdown. Robertson, infuriated, tries to show his displeasure with Derek. This ends with him getting flung into the guardrail by Derek's car. The video tells the story better than I ever could.
The video has went viral, closing in on a million views quickly. I have done something similar to this, only on Grand Theft Auto IV. It's a great thing that Mike let go, because he could have gotten sandwiched into the wall and suffered possible life threatening injuries. This is crazy on Derek's part, but "Rubbin, son, is racin'."
