Awesome post!

If it were up to me though, I wouldn't allow any winnebagos or celebrity taxis in the gumball, and just keep it real with fast cars and people who actually want to race. Some of those celebs didnt even drive, they just sat in the back seat, talking to the camera and trying to get as much publicity as they could.

Do you mean 200mph average speed? Most Supercars at 200mph run out of a tank of gas in less than 20 minutes... To pull that as an average speed even in a 3000 mile straight line would be pretty impossible.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Also, the Ultimate Rally has never been run. One of the crazies that has run the Gumball a few times is trying to put it together. It was supposed to be run this year but got delayed because of _______.
