Kyle Busch said Saturday that NASCAR and the tracks it races on need to do more to improve safety. Busch was speaking to the media for the first time since he returned to Daytona International Speedway. In February of this year Busch crashed during the season opening Xfinity Series race at Daytona breaking his right leg and left foot. Busch missed the first 11 races of the season undergoing two surgeries and extensive rehab.
The Speedway reacted by immediately covering the wall where he hit with a tire barrier on the same night after his accident. In the weeks following tracks around the country began to study their own safety and many made improvements including the addition of SAFER barriers at many tracks.
Saturday International Speedway Corporation owner of Daytona and 11 other tracks issued a statement. MORE>>>
