  1. I can see the upgrades of running on less gas giving off a more "green" approach to Nascar. The safety things of having air bags on the sides and seat belts will that's good as well because some of those accidents are just unbelievable. I'm amazed that many don't get injured from them.

  4. Interesting that you used a picture of Dale Earnhardt for this post, as much of the recent changes to vehicle safety in Nascar (specifically the neck brace) was put into place after the crash and subsequent death of Mr. Earnhardt. Sadly the sport had to lose one of its most famous drivers before the safety changes were made. Unfortunately, that is what usually brings on change in many things-- an untimely death.

    Nascar is one of the fastest growing sports. The amount of technology is this sport goes far beyond safety.

    Drivers apply scientific techniques while entertaining their fans. One example of this is the art of drafting. Many races have been won due to the drafting technique.
