FACT - (2-26-15 @ 11:41 pm EST) - while most of us in the Midwest are dreaming about the day when we can return to the local dirt tracks, driver safety has been in the minds of several people. Last Wednsday, several (80+ attended) members of the safety teams from Huset's Speedway, Eagle Raceway, MED-STAR (Huset's), ASCS Warrior Region, and others attended a seminar to address driver safety AFTER a crash. As you can see from the accompanying photo, they had a sprint car on its side and practiced driver extraction. Current World of Outlaw driver, Craig Dollansky was on hand to share a drivers perspective after the accident occurs.
Jerry Jenkins from the ASCS Warrior Region will be hosting a similar thing on March 21 near St. Louis, MO. I'm sure this goes on elsewhere but this caught my eye and I wanted to applaud this member that attended for donating more of their time to keep out drivers safe...after the accident happens.
