Monday morning

Good Morning.

Ryan Newman, who I believe deserves the Daytona NASCAR Win,
has chosen to continue to race.
Head injuries are serious occurrences.
i wish him the best.
I wouldn’t continue after this.

    Morning. I agree skyway. The two precious daughters would be enough to make me become a spotter for another driver...

    Every time I see a replay I believe...
    if I had won that race, I would give it to Newman.
    I did spend a week in coma, with a head injury in1988 at Stone Mountain.
    Recovery took 2 years and I still don’t have a good sense of distance and speed perception.
    i am extra cautious of entering everyday traffic situations and I am super aware of vehicles all around me.

    Good morning. 

    With respect to Newman, I understand Skyway's concern but he wouldn't be allowed to race if he had not gone through a rigorous medical check-up and concussion protocols.

    "WHAT PROCESS DOES THE TEAM AND RYAN HAVE TO GO THROUGH FOR HIM TO GAIN CLEARANCE?  “The first thing I would say is that I’m thankful that we’re actually even able to have this dialogue about that question because that was not something any of us were certain about when this happened, so it’s a great conversation to be having.  The reality is there are three groups that are going to dictate when he returns because he has expressed unequivocally that this is where he wants to be and he wants to be back in a race car.  Those three groups are gonna be Ryan and his family, his doctors, and then NASCAR and their medical team.  Our assumption is once all three of those sign off, then we’ll see him back in a race car.”

    Good morning.

    coffee ... drizzle ... coffee ... drizzle ...

    "Medical professionals" be darned, Ryan Newman shouldn't drive.

    "Concussion protocol" be darned, he just shouldn't drive.

    It will take weeks to evaluate the extent of the impairment.

    In the meantime, Mr. Newman should stay home with the kids.

    It appears that is what Mr. Newman is doing. Very few, if any, professional sports organizations have more knowledge in dealing with concussions than NASCAR. They are more cautious about their protocols than any other organization I know of.

    The NFL might know as much as NASCAR, but they won't admit it, or for how long.

    In today's news, Newman was quoted as saying that he'd suffered a "head injury".

    That pretty much seals it for the foreseeable future.

    He'll be comparing notes with Junior.

    That first sentence is likely true. NASCAR can afford to be open about the concussion deal because drivers aren't employees, hence less liability.
