The NHRA is going to have to install catch fencing like other forms of racing. This was bound to happen sooner or later. Very sad. I think NHRA needs to announce quickly that measures will be taken, but take a good hard look at what the best options are. This sport is not like other forms of racing and what works for Indy or NASCAR may not work for them. I'm sure the critics are sharpening their pencils right now so NHRA needs to be prepared to respond in a positive manner.
