Why do you have the headline 'Video of deadly California 200 crash' when you don't show the crash?

There is NOTHING graphic about your video.

In all seriousness; that section of the race course has been a known problem for the last few years. I have been in the off-road industry both as a hobby, and professionally for the last 6+ years. That section of the race course has ALWAYS been a scary section for both drivers, and spectators. The problem I see, is that it is too easy for the general public with no knowledge of how things work around there, to make it out to that section of the race track to watch. It is a VERY narrow section of course, and generally unsafe. The driver that crashed is very well known in the off-road community, and is VERY experienced on that course, and is a very good driver. I didn't see any carelessness on the drivers part whatsoever. Just my two cents...
