This Is Why NASCAR Doesn’t Have Sharp Turns

According to an A.P. report, the recent Nextel Cup champion Jimmie Johnson broke his left wrist after falling out of a golf cart. “I was in a golf cart,” Johnson said, “and the driver took a sharp turn.”

Fortunately, it was Johnson’s non-shifting hand, “and he should be able to participate in pre-season testing at Daytona next month.” NASCAR just completed its sixth consecutive season without a driver death. Not having sharp turns is plainly part of the success.
