It’s time NASCAR gets it head out of the sand ie. fan safety. Like so many issues there is no one answer. However, one solution is for sure, fans need to be moved farther away from the action. That is a start. Let’s remember though, the fence did stop the car and motor from going into the grandstand. Also no act can completely protect a fan so close to the action. At the Indy500, we sit about 15 rows above the track. I am always aware that parts could come through the fence and did in fact from Mike Conway’s car in 2010. Smart people in high places will find a better way, that I am confident in.
The Daytona 500 was a snoozer until the last 25 laps. Single file dule running to get to the end. I love the race, eagerly anticipate it, but with the Gen 6 cars…I expected much better racing.
There is no way I can blog without my mention of Danica. Kudos and hooray from Ray on a job well done. See you on the radio Thursdays at 9:05am along with Jim to talk racing.
