By

Are Race Car Drivers Athletes?

April 29, 2016
By

There have been many commentaries about whether a race car driver is really an athlete or just someone driving a car.  Have you recently driven 500 miles without a break except to slow down?  Try driving a NASCAR around the track going  200 mph on a 30% banked surface.  I think if you did...
