Most Infamous Crashes in Racing

Some of these I'd heard of but didn't know the details. Others I knew all too well. At any rate, it certainly reminds you how far safety tech has come...

#8 made me cringe.

Although I'm sure it's not as bad as someone burnt alive... it's just the effect of looking at the car waiting to see someone, and then realizing that the guy hadn't been in the car for some time.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

I was surprised that Zanardi's double-leg amputation crash wasn't listed there..
