    No Sports on TV!

    Funny how you can discover things when your thoughts are distracted.

    YouTube. Tractor pulls with explosions. Who knew so many people did the same thing over and over expecting different results?
    And how in the world can you think five blown V-8's clustered on a set of wheelbarrow handles with two wheelbarrow wheels on the front is going to really work?

    And you'd think the track workers, after one of said explosions, upon running out to the scene of the incident, would, oh, actually carry the fire extinguishers with them, instead of running out, pointing and waving, then running back behind the barriers, look around for the missing fire extinguishers, run back, figure out how to get the sides off to, oh, heck, actually be able to access the fire? And then figure out how to make the extinguishers function?

    It's as good as an old Laurel and Hardy movie sometimes.

    Oh, and watch the exhaust on some of those machines. They outlawed that fuel in drag racing decades ago.

    Hydrazine.

    It'll keep you occupied for days on end.

    I liked the slow motor race, it isn't much of a spectator sport but does seem challenging. I think it was rigged though, the truck that won I hadn't seen up until it crossed the finish.

    As far as the tractor pulls go, I like watching traction engines better.

    I gather there is a lot of technique involved in this motor sport + a lot of costs I imagine. The trucks are supposed to stay within the post. More room for the 8 x 8 than the 4 x 4.
    Watched this sport on TV while I worked in Italy.
