the fact of the matter is that the crash seen there is quite tame. Its not the original speed of the vehicle that should be taken into account, but the rate of change of speed - the deceleration. That crash lost little speed over a long period of time - that means the driver gets some bumps and bruises, a broken bone, maybe a concussion, especially with the safety measures taken in a sport like that. Ironically its crashes like these that seem to be the worst. Id take that type of wipe-out over hitting a brick wall straight on any day.

120-0mph in less than a second causes an aortic rupture. you bleed out in seconds - the blood fills your mediastinum and presses on your lungs, sometimes causing a haemothorax, preventing you from breathing in. not to mention any other internal organ damage you sustain.
