On Wednesday’s edition of NASCAR America, correspondent Nate Ryan discussed that in light of the Tony Stewart/Kevin Ward Jr. tragedy, will NASCAR strengthen enforcement of rules about drivers staying in their cars after being involved in wrecks.

Ryan also addressed car sponsorships for several drivers for next year.

    With the exception of Stewart on Irwin at Martinsville in 99 and Kurt Busch at Indianapolis in 2002, I can’t recall anyone getting dangerously close to traffic in NASCAR’s top divisions. Of course this doesn’t cover any future acts of stupidity.

    besides, the proposed rule and rules passed at these local tracks do NOT cover the problem. The problem is getting close to traffic, not staying in the car. So the officials say “ok man, you can get out of your car” Then the driver runs at traffic. Under the rules passed by local tracks, that is not illegal. As long as the offical says you can get out of your car (or the car is on fire) you can run toward traffic all you please bc the only thing illegal is getting out of the car. Its stupid…just plain stupid. Not to mention an over reaction
