    Being a child of very wealthy parents doesn’t hurt either. I wish I could drive a car doing only left turns and make as much money as they do. What a joke, and not his illness which isn’t a joke, but the fact Americans give millions to “athletes” and forget about everyone who really works hard.

    Wow! Obviously your not that talented or you would be racing and making millions. There are a lot of nascar drivers who didn’t have wealthy parents who made millions racing. For that matter you don’t have to be a driver in nascar to make a lot of money and have a great career! Get an education and get a job in nascar and then complain about it not being work!
