    “Don’t call it a comeback.

The stats these drivers posted this season just further added to their everlasting legacies.

    We cringe when it happens, and we hold our breath until we witness them emerge from the carnage.  It’s not the pretty side of the sport we love, and the end result is a lot of shop time put in to rebuild and gather up the pieces to race on.  Crashes are an inherent part of the sport and these sometimes are the consequences.  Here, we present eight of the gnarliest, wild rides from the 2020 USAC National season, all of which saw each driver walk away and race on.

    Ticking away the moments that make up a raceday, these are the most amazing single performances that don’t really fit into any other category.  These are the individual moments that were either significant in some form or fashion in a historical sense, or were moments in time that immediately established themselves as ones we wouldn’t soon forget from the 2020 USAC National season.
