Ooooookay, so everybody remembers what happened the Monday night of the Daytona 500 after it finally took place, right? How can anybody forget the towering inferno that was the poor jet dryer?
If you haven’t heard (because you live under a rock) here it is in a nutshell: yellow flag, Juan Pablo Montoya racing back to catch the field, rear end broke, jet dryer in his path filled with 200 gallons of jet fuel. End of story.
Robin Pemberton (vice president of competition) kindly reminded the drivers about their speeds around safety vehicles under cautions.
Here’s another idea on how to protect your workers and drivers, Robin: how about drivers not racing back to catch up with the rest of the field under yellow?
