So, someone (not IRL) asked this question:
Becoming a NASCAR driver: terrifying or awesome?
I said awesome but dumb. Here's my reason: I do love to go fast. Like, roller coaster fast. I have actually gone very fast (over 110mph in my Lancer) but I couldn't make a living from it and especially not such a dangerous living.
Do I want to die on a racetrack by executing a lifetime's worth of continuous left-hand turns?
Yeah, I don't think so.
Not to mention the fact I'm trying to make a conscious effort to reduce my carbon imprint and racing sports are the exact opposite of my goal!
