Young drivers today see bogus, unsafe “moves” by so called professional race car drivers on TV every weekend.  Blatant blocking, stupid banzai moves at a corner, totally intentional bumping and spinning someone in the corner.  Their mentality is, if I can’t pass you cleanly, I’ll move or crash you out of the way.  One reason I have no respect for most European and South American drivers and a lot of American Nascrap drivers is because that’s the way they race.  That’s not how I learned to race long ago.  Every race needs a tough Race Director to immediately penalize drivers who insist on dangerous rough driving.  Someone needs to tell little silver spoon Johnny that shit don’t fly at this track.
