    The difference is on track drama has a much lower probability of driver injury in the late model division as opposed to the division in which Jack was competing on the night he screamed at the flagman. I'm pretty sure the opportunity for bodily injury and his continued ability to earn money driving racecars was the major impetus for Jack's drama. Bent racecars and hurt feelings are one thing, broken bones and head injuries are altogether another.

    Yep. Jack says despite him winning all 4 A-main's at the 1998 4 Crown Nationals at Eldora, being a National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee and qualifying 22nd for the 1998 Indy 500 finishing 12th he believes he's best known for that video at Macon. He's probably correct.
