DELANEY TAKES A BREAK
Delaney: This isn't just a thousand to
One shot, this is a profession at blood
Sport and it can happen again
Monique: When people risk their lives
Shouldn't it be for something very important?
Delaney: It better be
Monique: But what is so important
About driving faster than anyone else?

Racing is important to men who do it well
Racing is life
Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
