Nascar has made the cars so bulletproof that drivers seldom get even slightly hurt anymore .. when is Nascar going to start looking out for the pit crews!!

They've given them helmets and firesuits. Don't know what more they can do except make each pit stall longer, but that's not even an option at most tracks. It's a dangerous job and the guys know it going in. No driver wants to hurt anyone, but accidents do happen.

If you see the replay where Biffle stopped you will see he was on the edge of his pit. The crews are working clear out on the road. Lets just hope it was minor to the crew member.

Biffle should have pulled up to the front of his pit and he should have pulled in more... what was Tony to do??
drivers who use their pit stalls to hold up others should be penalized.

Kyle Busch ran over his own crew member. He went flying right over the roof of his car. Kyle should have been penalized for running over his pit equipment :)

Looks like the crew guy is going to be ok, no broken bones. I think those guys have the most dangerous jobs in nascar.

I wonder how much the pit members get paid and is it worth it.
