I know it wasn't the smartest thing to race in the rain, but it wasn't as bad as it sounds. I had no problem getting traction and we were the only cars around. I'm not a perfect driver, but I know when to let off and what my car is telling me. I'm not stupid. If there was a local track I'd go to it, and I don't do that very often anyway. I'm not saying it was the best idea, but who cares, get over it!

Your life, your car, your lack of better judgement. Also your right, I dont care, and I'm def over it. Give Attitude then you can expect to get it back.

I drive a hour just to race at a 1/4 track that has seen better days. I drive a good 30 to 45 min to race at the nearest 1/8 tracks. I would much rather do this than race on the street, not saying that I've never raced on the street, cause I have. I think that racing is better done at the tracks, a place that happens to be designed for such a thing.

Yes maybe we need more race tracks, but then again even if we had more, street racing would still be done.
