The driver walked away unharmed. After a brief medical check, he was doing TV interviews.
NASCAR to its credit has made the so-called Car of Tomorrow safe enough for a driver to roll through such a wreck and complain only of being shaken up. Unfortunately, the rest of Sunday’s race was boring. It continued a trend of more boring races more often. Just give the trophy to Jimmy Johnson now. The 48 team is a juggernaut — one reason there’s not much drama left.
Here’s hoping NASCAR will figure out different wrinkles heading into the 2010 season to, uh, increase the octane of interest.
