In which I predict the future

Me, last Sunday: "Almost certainly, NASCAR will make a rule change that drivers cannot get out of their cars on the track until they get permission from safety crews (unless, of course, there's a fire or some other safety concern.)."

New York Times, today: "Responding to Death on a Track, Nascar Orders Drivers to Stay in Their Cars."  "Robin Pemberton, Nascar’s vice president for competition, announced Friday that drivers would now be required to remain in their racecars after accidents until safety workers arrived, unless they were at risk from fire or smoke."

In related news, Tony Stewart will sit out another race.
