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

NASCAR has new rule to keep drivers in cars under yellow.
