ISC Developing Plan For Additional Impact-Absorbing Technology

International Speedway Corporation President John Saunders issued a written statement today outlining the company’s plans in the aftermath of Kyle Busch’s crash at Daytona International Speedway Saturday.

“Beginning with our two superspeedway motorsports entertainment facilities, Daytona International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway, ISC is developing a significant plan for the installation of additional impact-absorbing technologies including but not limited to SAFER barriers,” said Saunders.

“We will utilize all available tools to ensure the safety of the drivers and our fans. It will remain our top priority. A thorough review of our other ISC facilities will continue with the focus to prioritize each track’s most critical areas first. This includes but is not limited to our upcoming races at Phoenix International Raceway and Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. ISC is working very closely with NASCAR and industry experts to identify areas for additional safety protections. As we finalize our plans, we will communicate them to the drivers and necessary stakeholders ahead of our races at each ISC facility.”

    Ask Denny Hamlin where to put them at Auto Club Speedway. I'm sure his expertise will be of significant help.
