Trump went to the Daytona 500 as the official race starter yesterday. As president, I wouldn’t do that. In fact, I’d try to dissuade motor car racing altogether. Ryan Newman is in serious condition after this crash (NBC News photo above) — 19 years to the day after a Dale Earnhardt Sr. crash, also on the last lap here, killed him. Earnhardt had a family. Newman has a wife and two children. These drivers, at these high speeds, spin around a track — metaphorically (and literally) similar to spinning the gun chamber in a Russian Roulette game. And we all, the fans, are voyeurs fueling (tragic pun intended) it all. It’s suicide, not sport. And for what redeeming reason(s)? Testing, say, oil viscosity at 210 mph? How ridiculous. And how sinful.
