Default Wreck at State Fair of Texas test drive today

Two Corvettes and a Malibu were involved around 5:00 this afternoon. I had driven one of them earlier in the day. Not major damage but they had three wreckers. The speed limit is 20 on the little test track. Someone got some splainin to do.

I did that event last Thursday. How in the hell did that happen??? I could have walked around the track faster than I was allowed to drive. I was so disappointed after the event I was like GM why even bother to have the event. Now some of the people in line that day looked like they just escaped the crazy house. IMO: They need to take their driver-Lic away..

Keep up that kind of accidents and GM won't be letting anyone drive the cars at events like that.

It's not the local Texans driving, it's all the damn Yankees that have moved here! And they are all wearing their " I'm not from Texas but I got here as soon as I could." T-shirts. Ya'll know that any time there are more than two cars on the road there'll be a wreck, it's called rush hour. Natives just don't drive then.

They were sooners down here for the TX/OU game. Seems they thought they were on I-35 headed toward the Red River.

Looks like the Impala crashed in to the vettes and not the other way around.
