NASCAR Formalizes "New" Rule

I recorded this Robin Pemberton press conference this morning. I intentionally did not upload it to YouTube which I'll explain later. SHR is holding a press conference at 10AM this morning which I will also record.

Please let me know if you have any trouble playing this video.

During an Event, if a racecar is involved in an on track incident and/or is stopped on or near the racing surface and unable to continue to make forward progress, unless extenuating emergency conditions exist with the racecar (i.e. fire, smoke in cockpit, etc.) the driver should take the following steps:

· Shut off electrical power and, if driver is uninjured, lower window net

· Do not loosen , disconnect or remove any driver personal safety equipment until directed to do so by safety personnel or a NASCAR/Track Official

· After being directed to exit the racecar, the driver should proceed to either the ambulance, other vehicle, or as otherwise directed by safety personnel or a NASCAR/Track Official

· At no time should a driver or crew member(s) approach any portion of the racing surface or apron

· At no time should a driver or crew member(s) approach another moving vehicle

All vehicles not involved in the incident or that are able to continue afterwards should slow down to a cautious speed as outlined in Section 10-4 (Yellow Flag), use extreme care as they approach an incident scene, and follow any directions given by safety personnel or NASCAR/Track Officials. Cars in line behind the safety car should not weave or otherwise stray from the line in the vicinity of the incident.

Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition and racing development, says the rule is "part of the evolution of NASCAR’s rules and regulations."

"Throughout the history of our sport, NASCAR has reviewed and analyzed situations and occurrences that take place not just in NASCAR racing but also throughout all motorsports and other sports," said Pemberton. "When we believe we can do something to make our sport safer and better for the competitors and others involved in the competition environment, we react quickly. Safety always has been priority number one at NASCAR."

As with other behavioral infractions, NASCAR will handle each instance separately when assessing potential penalties.

Thanks for posting and summarizing (I missed that conference) :oops:

I know everyone will not agree on this new rule, but I do.

Re: NASCAR Formalizes "New" Rule

From what Robin said, NASCAR always reminds the teams about this in the drivers' meeting before each race. This just puts it formally in the rule book.

Re: NASCAR Formalizes "New" Rule

It is almost like saying, just because we say it, does not mean you have to abide by it unless it is in writing...that would be a whole different story then.

Yes, it has always been stated in the Drivers' Meeting before the race, but now it's a rule with penalties, so they will adhere to it more.

Re: NASCAR Formalizes "New" Rule

It seems to me that if the penalties are assessed (as stated "as with other behavioral issues") on an individual basis, it's almost like having no penalties at all. I realize we live in a grey world, but if a rule is in black-and-white, so too should be the consequences. I hope they're VERY specific in the drivers' meetings when this is discussed :-)

Well, we'll find out what the penalties will be when someone breaks the rule :|
