Really not impressed that it was solar power that put the spotlight on Elliott Sadler almost being killed because of POCONO's neglect in finishing the safety barriers ALL the way around the track on both sides. Steve Park and Jr. had a bad crash into that same kind of barrier in 2001. Seems like 9 years would have been time to get this corrected. Green doesn't really impress me. Life and Death does.
