Safety

Safety

With teams always trying to make their car faster, cars started becoming more aerodynamic.

This was great! More exciting for fans

But it also posed a problem.

Faster cars = harder, more violent wrecks

Safety cont

Safety cont.

It was things like this that prompted NASCAR to look into better safety equipment.

One of the things NASCAR would do is add restrictor plates to the cars at superspeedways.

This cuts down the amount of air that can get to the carburetor, causing the car not to be able to go as fast as easily if at all.

Changes in NASCAR

Because of this accident, all NASCAR drivers became required to use regulated safety head gear, fire suits, and restraints.
