The feeling you get from winning is a combination between endorphins, dopamine, and adrenaline. This intern fuels the feeling we as “gear heads” crave and enjoy so much. Plus, it gives us bragging rights amongst our fellow car enthusiasts. Every person at the track has a drive for these bragging rights, and it’s this competitiveness that only fuels the fire for our addiction. Being competitive, is a defining quality for any athlete or anyone in a sport.
The excitements of watching your favorite driver lead the race, hoping your driver can maintain the lead after twenty some cars come in to the pit for four tires and a tank of gas. Watch a pit crew change four tires and fuel up a car under twenty seconds. The excitement of auto racing is immeasurable. The entertainment of the sport is like no other. Auto Racing does have a violent side to it.
An excessant shriek erupted from the car as it grinded to a halt at the coming stop sign. Then, to my greatest horror the white lights on the rear of the car ignited......the car was going in reverse. The sweat began to pour from my body, while my heart raced to pump blood at an accelerated rate. The chase was on. Pedaling my bike, I swerved left and right, dodging all sorts of trash which littered the desolate ground beneath my feet.
I wondered to myself how come he came from rear ending me. A sudden strike of rage hit me and changed my whole mental view on the situation. I release my foot from the brake petal and jam it onto the gas petal dangerously, showing my vicious streak. I get up on his bumper getting closer and closer. I turn on my new Xenon brights, virtually blinding the driver in front of me.
As the two Mclarens entered the pit straight to complete the first lap, Senna led, but Prost, having carried more speed through the final turn, was firmly in his slipstream. As Prost pulled out to complete the pass, Senna swerved to the right, Prost, refusing to lift, kept coming. Soon the cars were side by side, wheels interlocking at 180 MPH. Prost was just inches from the pit wall. Prost made the pass and duly won the race.
The community of auto racing is working altogether to create new innovations to make racing as safe as it can possibly be. Auto racing is becoming a safer sport with all of the new innovations introduced in the past couple of years including the caught fence, safety barrier, and Han's device. Everyone that has been watching auto racing can't deny that all of the cars have been getting faster and faster. With every ten miles per hour the car gets it makes the driver 10% more at rick of getting injured. There are many reasons why the cars have gained speed.
Looking back David could see another 11 cars. This is going to be tough David whispered to himself, the referee horned and every racer was off. David couldn’t hear anything but the power of the engine bursting into life. David was in 5th place while Joe was well ahead. David eased into 3rd place and 2 laps to go, he had to up his game.
Driving fast in the car I built is my favorite thing to do and it had got me in plenty of trouble but I felt as the rush was worth it. It was a few summers ago and I had just got my turbo put in, I was on the highway on my way to the local car meet and I decide to take off, I get my car up to 100 mph then slow down, but then I want to time it this time so I get my phone out to use my timer and take off again but this time I reach up to 128 mph and I stretch it all the way to the capital blvd exit. Right as I thought... ... middle of paper ... ...ea but I would be one of the people that don’t get away. As soon as my I get my car to slow down so I can turn back, there are 3 cops coming towards my car and realized I couldn’t go anywhere. The officers cars come to a halt and one of the officers tell me to throw my keys out the window and I was taken downtown for the night and was explained to, that my car will be seized by the department and will be crushed due to the illegal street modifications and I will have to attend the day they crush my car as punishment, including the several tickets I received.
Then when the car was half in the street and half in Roger's yard they all yelled "Hey Fuck-o" and speed off. "You little bastards callin me a buck-o" Roger yelled as his hudge buck teeth bit his bottom lip " I'll kick your ass". Then Roger jumped In his shit brown FORD truck and started the engine (well I mean tried to start the engine because he had to pull start it). Then he speed out of his driveway and took off with smoke coming from the tires (and from under the hood). He caught up with the Cougar and started hanging out the window trying to hit the car but he couldn't hold the steering wheel and do bash the car at the same time.
Going into the first corner the two McLaren’s are leading the race but they are closely followed by one of the Ferrari’s. The Ferrari wants to overtake the McLaren’s so he is making dangerous moves to do so. The Ferrari is gaining speed and closing the gap, in no time he will be in the position to overtake. The atmosphere is rising the crowd is shouting and screaming. The pressure is too much for the driver of the Ferrari and he makes a mistake, all his hard work is undone and he loses his advantage.
