Rootie - I was in the Marines and graduated from LSU - so you know I'm not very smart. My concern is not only with the spectators, but the drivers and crews as well. If some dad had been standing behind the fence with his little boy where Paul Dallenbach went off at Pikes Peak, the outcome would have been the worst. I'm sure Paul and his crew feel bad enough about tearing up equipment, but to know he had killed somebody in doing it would be too much to bear. I haven't heard you respond this way on other topics. I know you can see Pikes Peak from your house - and that is very cool. I was up there a couple years ago myself. Has there been some debate about controling the crowds during the Hill Climb? I assume you can drive and park where you like before the event. I'd love to be there at least once to see the Hill Climb, but I guarantee you I'd be on the inside of a turn. Everybody on here respects your opinions and comments. Please don't take anything I've said as a personal attack towards you.
