Man, this is brutal.
NHRA is having a really bad few years... way too many deaths.
Something's gotta be done to improve safety.... in every division.
Agreed, I think they are going about it the wrong way. Last year, they shortened the track to 1000' instead of a 1/4 mile for the pro classes, but that was just a knee jerk reaction in my opinion. The cars are actually pretty safe, but I don't feel the tracks are as safe as they could be, some serious re-engineering of the end of the track and guard rails would help.
