Did you guys read about the CART Racing in Texas.Any way the high bank there at Texas Motor Speedway is at 24 degrees which has meant the cars can run at as high speeds as 381 kph and the G Force is so bad the drivers are taking over 5 Gs and going dizzy and possibility of passing out. Wow that is hard out racing.They can go full throttle round the corner. Race was postponed.
