Shit!! If there were crashes like that more often I'd drive out there to watch the race!

They had to pave it due to a lawsuit from the Sierra Club, the dirt and sand from the old road was ruining the dirt and sand from the mountain. At 14,000+ I think it's the highest paved road in North America.

The amazing part is, that guy that rolled down the hill walked away from it with minor injuries.

So I guess the guys that were racing up there are going to swap dirt tires for the street kind, retune and keep on keep'in on?

I looked up that 1300-1400 horsepower car in the first vid within the link. Stupid vehicle to be driving around there, truly.

Also going at limits in a race around a corner that has no fence and leads to falling down a cliff is similarly stupid. These clowns are lucky they aren't dead.

Roll-cage on that lancer sure worked, though.
