SAFETY FIRST: ESPN's Nicole Briscoe said of the changes made to the catch-fence at DIS, "Just like Talladega, after the accident in February, both superspeedway tracks made some changes to the catch-fencing by reinforcing the cross over gates with additional tethers to help support the fence." ESPN's Brad Daugherty added of the improvements, "The thing that's most impressive is how they have reacted to the situation. There's no way to make it one hundred percent safe when you have 3,400-pound race cars running around at two hundred miles an hour" ("NASCAR Countdown," ESPN, 7/5).
