NASCAR Changes Rules for Drivers that take life in own hands
NASCAR announced a new rule Friday governing driver behavior under caution in the wake of the incident in which Tony Stewart struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. in a sprint car race.
Vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said the rule was distributed to teams before Sprint Cup practice Friday morning at Michigan International Speedway.
During a caution period, if a driver’s car is involved in an incident and stopped on or near the racing surface and unable to make forward progress, the driver must:
–Shut off the car and lower the window net if uninjured;
–Wait for directions from safety personnel or NASCAR officials to loosen safety equipment
