  • Logano takes a dig at NASCAR over its rules and regulations
  • NASCAR has implemented certain rule changes

Joey Logano is calling for a refresher in NASCAR’s rules and regulations after surviving a car wreck at Geico 500.

On Saturday, Logano was running third on Lap 60 in the outside lane just behind Matt DiBenedetto and Ryan Blaney at the Geico 500 when Denny Hamlin hit his No. 22 Autotrader Ford on the left rear.

What followed next was scary scenery as Logano’s car spun out down the bank and was hit by Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s No. 47 Chevy, sending the No. 22 airborne.

Logano’s Autotrader Ford then flipped upside down a couple more times before sliding onto the infield grass.

Fortunately for Logano, he left his car unharmed and without any serious injuries.

Speaking to FOX Sports after the horrible car wreck, Logano admitted that he is “happy to be alive,” but he also took the opportunity to urge NASCAR to review its rules and regulations.

“I guess I don’t know exactly what to think,” Logano admitted. “It’s a product of this racing. On one hand, I am so proud to drive a Cup car that is safe, and that I can go through a crash like that and get out and speak about it. On one hand, I am mad about being in the crash, and on the other, I am happy to be alive.”

“On another hand, I’m wondering when are we going to stop because this is dangerous—doing what we are doing,” the 2018 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion continued. “I got a roll bar in my head. That is not okay. I’m one hit away from the same situation Ryan Newman just went through. I just don’t feel like that’s acceptable.”

It can be recalled that last year at the Daytona 500, Ryan Newman’s car also flipped over in almost the same way as Logano’s in Talladega.

The crash knocked Newman unconscious and ended up with a brain contusion.

While it is quite normal for speeds to be much higher at the longer, wider superspeedways, NASCAR has been attempting to make things a little safer for drivers on all kinds of tracks--including superspeedways.

In a seeming response to the Newman incident, NASCAR made certain in-race rule changes, Autoweek noted.

Among the notable changes made were, “Reduction of horsepower via the tapered spacer, updated roll bar padding specifications, and elimination of aero ducts at superspeedway tracks.”
