I don't know about you guys, but I think this picture would have made a better cover for the DVD:

Lisa Belgetti: [ to Delaney ] Why is it so important to you to drive faster than other people?

Michael Delaney : This isn't a thousand to one shot. This is a professional bloodsport. And it can happen to you. And then it can happen to you again.

Lisa Belgetti : When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something important?

Michael Delaney : Well, it better be.

Lisa Belgetti : But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?

Michael Delaney : Lotta 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.
