Ohio Sprint Week

Kyle Larson has won the first two All Star Sprint car races in the Ohio Speedweeks. Tony Stewart was seventh tonight. billy

Kyle Larson is the REAL deal. I saw an interview with him recently where he said he’s been in almost 30 different cars THIS YEAR. He has a Ganassi deal, and getting a lot of seat time, in a lot of different types of cars.

The next Tony Stewart right here folks.

Here’s an example of what can happen when the track has no fire extinguishers at hand. From Sunday’s show in Ohio. Logan Schuchart had a brake rotor break and go through the fuel cell. It caused a relatively small fire that could have been quickly knocked down with an extinguisher. Instead they had to wait for a fire crew to prime their truck pump and hit the fire with a water hose. In the meantime they watched the car burn. It’s about a minute and a half into the video.

There is absolutly no excuse for the firemen to be that unprepared. Logan could have been trapped in the car if it had flipped and the outcome could have been much worse. At least the firemen were suited up. Down here, they would have been in shorts and t-shirts and with no extinguishers.
