NASCAR is unquestionably dangerous. Numerous drivers have died in accidents in the past. To its credit, the organization has dramatically improved its safety record with Dale Earnhardt’s death at the Daytona 500 in 2001 the last fatal accident.

He also candidly admitted how dangerously close he came to dying in the violent crash.
