- Discussion on how Drag Racing furthers the
development of technologies that affect us all.
- Today on Repairs101 – we’re at the
track. Check it out!
- So now on one hand the track is just burning
petrochemicals for fun but…
- … man, it is fun.
- At the same time it’s a really necessary
scientific proving ground. This is a place where minds come together and
create a forum where they can discuss ways to improve existing technologies,
modify technologies and indeed inventing new technologies that you and I
will both end up behind the wheel of sooner or later. Cars like this that
you might be driving every day – they make modifications here that
eventually find their way into your vehicle. There’s a car you could be
driving on the street right now. I mean, sure, he came in second but he
still did a thirteen.
- Now on one hand I’ll give you that it’s
a lot like putting a thousand monkeys in a room with a thousand typewriters.
Eventually, by pure random chance, one of them is going to create the entire
works of William Shakespeare. We are just conducting the same experiment
over and over again. In a situation like this one of those monkeys actually
will be a William Shakespeare. But at the same time you have to understand
that the monkeys in that parable are just a metaphor – and they’re a
metaphor for guys just like me.
- So we’ve all got to work together to keep
the track and racing as environmentally friendly and as environmentally
responsible as possible.
