NASCAR Enacts Rule Change Keeping Drivers In Cars After Accidents

NASCAR VP/Competition Robin Pemberton Friday addressed the media to announce a rule change that drivers are no longer allowed to exit their car on the track after accidents. Pemberton said of enforcement, "It will be addressed according to each individual situation.”

ESPN's Ricky Craven said the "most important thing is that there now is a mandate, and it's very clear that the drivers understand that they're to stay in the car." He added the new rule will not be "difficult at all to enforce and to monitor." Craven said the "drivers are still going to confront one another in the garage area, the drivers are going to confront one another in places other than the racetrack" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 8/15).
