Another Sprint Car Death: What Racing Needs To Learn After Tony Stewart
On Saturday night at Beaver Dam, Wisconsin a Sprint car driver was killed during practice. It was later announced that the driver was Scott Semmelman.

Yes, they have changed some of the rules in NASCAR where you are no longer allowed to leave your car but that has to trickle down to Sprint Car as well. NASCAR has evolved to be more safe, to the point where it is almost uncomfortable for the drivers, and it seems like some of its lower level series need follow suit before we see another driver leave the race too soon.
