You are correct about Bill and 210 in 87. Bobby Allison also nearly flew in the stands in 87 at the same track which brought the need for slower speeds. Yes the drivers are comfortable at these speeds but reaction time still a part of the deal like it or not. We need to remember the tracks were built for slower speeds and the seating areas at the lower areas are a reflection of that. It is a matter of time when someone ends up in the stands killing fans and then the public outcry will all but end the sport. The drivers hate the super speedway and the car owners hate spending the money on the cars they total at these smash fests. Listen to them complain after every big one. These new cars coming next year are being built with little ability to crush when hit. That info comes from a long time builder who helped develop these cars at one of the big teams. They are rigid as hell.Yes drivers love going faster and faster but as Cale once said anyone can go 200 mile and hour in a stright line,it turning around and going the other way that gets tricky.
