NOT IN A HAPPY PLACE: In Charlotte, Rick Bonnell noted NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick hit the wall at DIS head-on during the Daytona 500 and is "sore emotionally that a sport making so much money won't spend to make the top safety technology universal, even in the sport's premier venue." Harvick said, "The tracks, for the most part, don't listen to really anything unless it's profitable for their shareholders. So when you see somebody spending $400 million on their track, and they don't have soft walls around the inside, maybe they could spend $403 million on their track and finish the inside of the speedway down there in Daytona." He added, "It really shouldn't even be a debate. ... It's just one of those things, I guess, that you just wait around for something else (horrible) to happen and then they'll fix it" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 3/1).
