Shawn Wood's motorsports column: Highs and lows in one week


Although I was not in attendance on Wednesday at Bridgeport, I can tell you that the New Jersey State Police -- who govern auto racing in the state -- are very tough on their safety rules. They won't let a car onto the track until it passes their inspection, regardless of who you are.

I have often wondered what it would take to incorporate a SAFER-barrier type system into guardrails for dirt tracks. I am sure it would be very expensive, but if it would saves lives, it would be worth it.
