  • Ya know, that's a very progressive idea, after all, the US military currently does just that with planes.

    In fact a driver seated at a console, similar to those at arcade games, with video access wouldn't be at risk of injury, although they would need a pocket full of quarters.

    Maybe NASCAR should reconsider...

  • Factropolis is missing the other half of this story. The Japanese "investors" (some might call them thieves) were selling season tickets to NASCAR Japan before they had even closed the deal. When it fell through, a lot of people got scammed.
