Jimmie Johnson is an Idiot

Jimmie Johnson, five time NASCAR champion, should keep his mouth shut when he doesn't know what the hell he is talking about. His reaction to the Indy car crash was to say that they should race only on road courses and not do so on oval tracks. That is an idiotic over-simplification which, if followed, would eliminate the Indianapolis 500 for instance, the oldest and most prestigious motor car race in America.

The cause of the crash involved many factors, among them the greater than usual number of cars, that Las Vegas has a higher than usual degree of banking, and the fact that it is progressive banking which allows the cars to run four and five wide. Johnson has never driven an Indy car and knows little or nothing about what is involved in racing them.
