Nah all that body work is basically tissue paper it's that you can see where the absurdly strong welded tube rollcage that is the actual frame the rest of the car is bolted to has failed in several points, particularly the way all the structure in the drivers door region is collapsed 10-12 inches behind the plane of the wheels.

The halo looks like it's at jaw level for someone in the seat.

it reminds me a lot of when Wheldon died in Indycar

you just see a wreck happen, and way off in the distance, he gets hit with a nose cone in the head and then immediately crashes his car into the infield wall

I値l admit taking NASCAR safety for granted after Austin Dillon walked away from his 2015 Daytona wreck. The crash tonight was basically a worst-case-possible scenario for the least protected area for the driver (the window net opening directly beside the seat) getting hit head-on at 200 mph by a heavy-rear end stock car.

Justin's wreck at least had some deniability about it in the beginning. Dan's was very obviously extremely loving bad from the time it started.

Having finally watched the replay, this looks more like Dan's than Justin's. gently caress me.

That is the worst possible hit in a modern cup car. Upside down so the door reinforcement and foam is not in play, driver side, after the cage has already been deformed by a prior hit.

The Fox broadcast team is a class act, so I don't fault them at all. They look and act a bit redneck at times, but I feel like they really do care about the drivers' safety.

it's probably good that they're not updating yet? I mean if he were DOA we'd probably know by now. presumably they're waiting until they assess him more, or get him into surgery, or just know more information before an official update. hopefully.

Yeah, I was thinking about this. An intact, right-side-up Cup car might be the safest racecar in the world. This one already hit the wall head on at about 200 mph and got flipped onto its roof. You can't engineer for that and the kind of hit it took.

no, Justin Wilson ended up in a coma and died a day later

the first press conference after his accident was to announce his death

Joy said they were moving fast. The reports are that he was rushed in to the hospital.

I was a kid and I didn't make too much of it at the time, but when my dad saw how slow they were working on Dale, he took us out for ice cream or something.

Cuz I'm a bit shook thinking I just watched a guy die in a live broadcast, and I'm looking for things to give me hope rn. The last two times I watched someone die, it hosed with me for a bit.
