My answer is yes. Think of the crew members stuck in the middle of such a scenario.

Saw a pic on FB of Hight after the St. Louis (Madison) crash the with his arm in a sling. When it's in a sling, seems to me, you're pretty close to not being able to drive.

What if he wasn't able to drive? He would not have been able to run and win in Dallas. Maintaining a 50 point lead.

#2JR was also in the Dallas final... collecting points.

If such a rule/protocol was in place, racers like Hight would be less prone to pressure their doctors into signing a release. Also, there should be a specific release form that doctors need to sign that clearly explains the replacement driver clause in the rules so they know about it and feel less pressure to sign off. Also on that form, it should have some legal warning that the Dr. can be held legally liable should a driver they signed off on happens to injure someone/kill someone else in a crash because of their condition.

No NHRA doesn't need to start awarding cochampions. Unfortunately there is a risk involved in racing. If they are stupid and allow this then I know one championship they sure should take away and award posthumously to a driver

I guess I see this as more of a team sport than others do. This ain't golf.

Exactly. I guess they should take the Super Bowl trophy away from the Eagles too...

Seems to me Hight is fit to drive.

Voted "NO".

I'd like to see just how quick he can exit the car on his own before declaring how fit he is to drive. Yeah they may have protected his collarbone from further injury. But he admitted in the interview that getting in and out of the car was difficult.

And I wouldn't base my vote on yje poll based off his particular situation.
