Interesting. A bold stance on an issue the writer seems to know little about backed by some completely wrong facts.

Which party's nomination is he seeking? :D

Look, I don`t blame any racer for trying to make a living, Justin was, as far as I can tell the most accessible driver in the paddock...always there to talk to me, to you, to the media...to take pictures. Always outside the hiding spot that every other driver was using. R.I.P/..I`m glad I got a chance to meet him.

But...this car, this sport, is more flawed than any other I have watched. Enjoy. Good thing I don`t get NBCSN....off to watch beisbol and futbol.

If you research deep enough, I think you can connect "death" with every sport that ever existed. That's what disturbed me the most - I'm not an Indy fan, but this writer seems to have an axe to grind.

You can pretty much connect death with any aspect of everyday living. Justin was probably safer that day at Pocono than I am on my 11 mile commute to work everyday.
