They really, really played. Well, we never could get in a flow because of our turnovers. You know, you give Incredible.

"Couple of weeks ago. I found myself at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach Florida riding shotgun in a souped up race car attempting to hold onto my lunch as I- careened around the steep embankments of America's most famous race track at one hundred and twenty miles per hour on this kind of fun on Sunday. Morning in the driver's seat was Matt Humphrey the director of Racing Communications for Nascar. Now imagine doing this though. Two hundred miles per hour with thirty nine of your closest friends. Five by side knows the tail for three hours. You have to be in great shape. Yet and nerves of steel. Every year legions of race fans descend on this speedway for the big event in American motorsports the Daytona five hundred. Were they let you ride shotgun during the race right? Alaska was not writing during the race. Which is probably for the best of the best But seriously the Daytona. Five hundred is known as the great American race. It is one of the most attended sporting events in the country. Come Race Day the Standard Daytona can hold more than a hundred thousand screaming fans and by comparison if you look at football the NFL's largest stadium has a capacity of about eighty thousand but this year the super bowl of racing comes at a precarious time for Nascar the sports governing body in recent years. It has seen its TV ratings. And attendance numbers plummet. This is the indicator plant money. I'm Darius Rafi on and I'M GARCIA SHOW NASCAR facing a dilemma that a lot of businesses face. What do you do when you're winning? Formula is no longer so winning. Can NASCAR attract a new generation of fans without alienating the people that made the company so successful in the first place or is one of America's most popular spectator sports heading for crash? Oh Yeah I went there.

How Has the HANS Device Improved Car Racing?

"Today's episode is brought to you by listerine ready tabs small discrete tabs, the transform from a solid to a liquid just to switch and swallow no sink required to get that just brushed clean feeling, and they pack a huge punch up to four hours of fresh breath, and the confidence that goes with it on the go wherever life takes you to a surprise meeting a date you want to freshen up for or just from one event to another try listen ready tabs today. Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vocal bomb here in the early days of car racing. Even a minor accident could be fatal. For example, Patrick Jack mart was killed at mid Ohio in one thousand nine hundred one after a head on collision with a Bank his car was left relatively unscathed. But Jack Martin ended up with a skull fracture caused severe brain damage lucky for other racers to of Jack marts friends stepped in and created a safety device that has changed the sport of car racing forever. Those friends were Jim downing and Jack marts brother-in-law Dr Bob Hubbard the two decided to combine Downing's knowledge of racing and Hubbard's expertise in engineering and skull anatomy to develop new safety gear to try to prevent deaths like Jack marks from happening. Again, these simple and effective invention. They created became known as the Hans device short for head and neck support. The Hans device isn't like a car airbag, which inflates a cushion to stop the driver in case of a collision. Instead, the Hans device pro. Actively uses a raised collar and two tethers to secure the driver's head. In other words, it's a shoulder collar that attached to both the car seats safety harness and the driver's helmet in the event of a crash. It keeps the racers head and neck properly aligned with the torso preventing the type of excess force that would otherwise result in serious or fatal neck and head injuries. But it took years for the Hans device to become a financial success. And unfortunately, it took the death of a high profile racer for NASCAR to take notice. When Dale Earnhardt senior was killed in two thousand one in a crash similar to Jack marts at the Daytona International Speedway the race and community including NASCAR finally took the Hans device seriously. Now, most recent organizations require the use of a Hans device for all drivers. The Hans device is specifically designed to prevent Basler skull. Fractures, those injuries are caused when a car suddenly decelerate s- in earnhardt's fatal crash Daytona. For instance, NASCAR determined. That he hit the wall going one hundred and sixty miles per hour. That's two hundred and fifty seven kilometers per hour and slowed by somewhere between forty two to forty four miles per hour about sixty seven to seventy kilometers per hour in just eighty milliseconds. This sudden deceleration is known as the delta v literally the change in velocity. A while. It's difficult to provide exact statistics on how many lives have been saved by the Hans device. We do know this NASCAR where certified hands are mandatory did not have one single driver fatality in the decade after earnhardt's death. Whereas there were one hundred twenty six deaths from crashes on drag strips and short tracks where hints devices are not required and hands estimates that of those one hundred twenty six deaths as many as twenty seven percent that's thirty four driver deaths could have been prevented by using the device, and no driver in an IndyCar or an any of nascar's major series has been killed by Basler skull fracture since it required.
