Actually, I agree with a lot of what greddytC has to say. Like Jake, I disagree with the "fate" argument...but I do agree with most of the rest, which I think is actually fairly positive. He says he doesn't race in such a way to endanger others, which is most important. If he wants to take risks with his own life, then that's his prerogative. "Playing it safe" is often, but not always, smarter, but it's certainly not as exciting. Most people take risks of varying degrees when they are younger; it's just a matter of learning which risks are worth taking and which are not while you're still intact.
