This week, rumors came out online about the safety of the Next Gen car after it had a crash test at Talladega Superspeedway on June 30.
Jenna Fryer of the Associated Press obtained a copy of a memo that was sent to drivers regarding the Talladega crash test.
In the memo, NASCAR states “After preliminary review of the dummy data from the test indicates good and comparable performance when compared to other right frontal dummy data.”
NASCAR said there is more analysis to be done and that work is underway.
