NASCAR will investigate Joey Logano’s Talladega wreck

NASCAR will see “if there is something else we can do immediately” to keep cars from getting airborne after Joey Logano’s crash Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.

Scott Miller, NASCAR senior vice president of competition, made the comments Monday during “The Morning Drive” on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

“We’re disappointed that what transpired transpired, but super happy that Joey was OK and the roll hoop — and all the things that needed to protect him — did,” Miller told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “But cars getting up in the air is not good. It’s something that we’ve been working on and will continue to work on.”

While NASCAR has made numerous safety improvements through the years — roof flaps, among others — to keep cars on the ground, Miller said: “Obviously, we saw this weekend that it’s not enough, and we will continue to work, as we always do, to see if there is something else we can do immediately to counteract those effects.”
