Devastating Daytona International Speedway Crash Leaves 28 Fans Injured!

Filed under: InjuryNASCARScary!

Holy shizz!!!

We hope everyone will be alright!!

This video is NUTS — and we're sure that even if you don't watch NASCAR that you heard this happened! It's way worse than we thought!

A racing fan was filming a current lap at the Daytona International Speedway when disaster struck: a massive wreck that sent debris hurtling towards fans, injuring at least 28 people in the the process. Fans can be seen trying to flag down medical help for wounded friends. If you watch the video (above), you might find it disturbing, even if there isn't visible injuries!

At least one tire flew into the crowd!

Apparently one adult underwent surgery for life-threatening head trauma, and a 14-year-old is in critical, but not life-threatening condition. We hope they both make it — what an awful situation.

In a weird twist, Kyle Larson, who was driving, was not injured.

Do Hot Dogs Give You Cancer?

Filed under: FitnessCancer

According to a new billboard near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway they do!

In response to concession stands selling more than 1.1 million hot dogs during the Indianapolis 500 races in 2010, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine put up the advertisement to warn consumers of the danger lurking inside each bun.

The billboard features hot dogs protruding from a cigarette package to send the message that a "Hot dog can wreck your health."

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, one 50-gram serving of processed meat daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by about 21%.

If that's true, hot dog lovers may be putting their colon in danger because just one hot dog contains the equivalent of 50-grams of processed meat.

We knew hot dogs couldn't have been "good" for you body, but we didn't know they could cause cancer! This may make us think twice before buying our next Dodger dog.

Check out the video above for all the details!

Chad Ochocinco Tries Out NASCAR

AP Images.]" target="_blank">Chad Ochocinco is willing try anything once! On top of his career in the NFL, the wide-reciever has tried his hand at professional wrestling, soccer, and even bull riding!

Most recently, the Cincinnati Bengal has turned to NASCAR!

On Thursday at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Georgia, Ochocinco rode shotgun next to Jeff Burton in his No. 31 car for a few laps and reached speeds up to 160 mph! The ridiculous speed was, of course, at Ochocinco's request before Burton even touched the pedal, as the football player explained:

"I asked him to let loose. Please don't waste my time. Step on the gas."

Despite of his overwhelming confidence to master any sport, Ochocinco had nothing but praise for Burton and any other drivers guiding their cars through risky turns at ridiculous speeds, saying:

"How the hell they are able to do that with 30 other drivers on the track is beyond me…[NASCAR] really is a sport and it does take skill."

And as if driving 160 mph isn't scary enough, the thrill seeker plans to wrestle an ALLIGATOR in Florida!

Wow! This guy will literally do ANYTHING! We hope the NFL has good health insurance!

Protesters Want Trump Out Of Indy 500 Race

Filed under: ZportzPolitikBarack ObamaDonald Trump

Donald Trump Indy 500

Donald Trump, the esteemed real estate mogul and politician reality television star, was selected a month ago to appear as this year's celebrity pace car driver in the 100th annual Indianapolis 500. However, due to his recent political outbursts, some people aren't exactly thrilled.

His rants and raves about the legitimacy of just about anything and everything that makes President Barack Obama who he is has created a stir in the racing community. Now race fans, local citizens, and even an Indiana state lawmaker want to bump Trump from the race!

Michael Wallack, who took to Facebook and created a page protesting the Trump's appearance in the race, said:

"To me, when they first named Donald Trump, it just felt wrong. He has no relationship to the track, to the race, to racing, to Indianapolis, and I think I would have been bothered anytime with something like that. But to do that on the 100th anniversary, it made no sense. Then when he started going off on the birther stuff, that prompted me to do more and that's when I started the page."

Although Donald has not responded directly to those who wish to fire him from his racing gig, his executive vice president and special counsel, Michael Cohen, has said:

"The debate stems from unfounded, incorrect and malicious lies that Donald Trump has a racial bias toward the President. Nothing could be further from the truth, as Donald Trump doesn't have a racist bone in his body. Mr. Trump's request for President Obama's birth certificate, school records and documents were predicated upon transparency, a major part of President Obama's 2008 platform. If Mr. Trump should become the next president, he would provide these documents willingly."

That would be a great argument IF President Obama never showed his birth certificate, but sadly for Trump's reputation, he has…again…and again.

Rep. Jeb Bardon, a Democrat who represents the area surrounding the racetrack, thinks Trump's appearance will draw negative attention to this month's centennial celebration, and even used a speech at the legislature last week to call for a driver change.

Organizers say that they have never replaced a celebrity driver, at least in an incident that has been recorded over the last 100 years, but are monitoring the protests against Donald Trump's appearance.

Guess we'll find out by May 29 if Trump gets dumped by the Indy 500!
