I had a Chevy that burned oil that bad.
NASCAR moved the date of the Daytona 500 to accommodate NFL and the Super Bowl, and the race was snakebit from the get-go.
Now the NFL is moving their 2012 start date to accommodate Obama’s speech at the DNC. Lay in a supply of anti-venom, folks.
And a good stash of Preparation A thru H wouldn’t be a bad idea.
The kerosene-like jet fuels are less flammable and therefore safer but we have proven to a nationwide television audience that the stuff you put in your furnace really does burn and that it can ignite as quickly as gasoline.
NASCAR is really good at fire fighting. I’m pretty sure they have never trained for quenching a jet fuel fire let alone fighting one with a couple hundred gallons driving it. Didn’t matter. The safety crews were on top of the incident in a heartbeat, had the driver out and safe in seconds, and had the fire itself knocked down in minutes.
It was a remarkable showcase for an exceptional organization.
And, since this is so often a political page, I hasten to add that not one Act of Congress was required.
