The NASCAR chairman Brian France has said that he wants the sport to always be like the race on Sunday at the Auto Club Speedway. It was one of the most exciting NASCAR races in recent times. However, it was blighted by the injury to Denny Hamlin, who suffered fractures after crashing with his former teammate Joey Logano. As a result of this crash, Hamlin’s participation in the forthcoming races is under a cloud of doubt. Other than this, the Sunday’s race was a great example of how the sport should be in the future according to Brian France.
He has said that the race was extremely tight with several passing opportunities for the competitors. This made for a great spectacle according to France. Joey Logano and Hamlin have been part of a major incident only last week, but the chairman France has said that he does not intend to hold talks with the pair in the hopes of repairing their relationship. He has acknowledged that NASCAR remains as a contact sport and such incidents are bound to happen in the latter stages of the race. The most important thing according to France was that both drivers were extremely competitive.
However, France did confirm that the organising committee is studying the incident involving the drivers. “What I know is when the racing is tighter and there’s more passing, there’s just more excitement and more contact and more things that happen. That’s kind of what NASCAR is all about. Kind of what happened on Sunday was a prototype event for how we would look what a good event ought to look like. They were going at it. It probably didn’t hurt the competitiveness that both drivers didn’t want the other one to win,” said France, who said that SAFER barriers could be installed to prevent such incidents in the future.
