NASCAR drivers walk away from several Talladega Superspeedway crashes

Join the conversation and vote below

Many NASCAR drivers walked away from airborne cars and crashes at Sunday's Talladega Superspeedway. Although there were luckily no injuries, many are blasting restrictor-plate racing for being too dangerous. Unlike the drivers, the cars didn't walk away without scratches: 35 out of the 40 cars racing were involved in accidents.

Is NASCAR too dangerous and in need of even stricter rules? Or is NASCAR just a furious and dangerous sport that critics just need to accept?

While some are simply saying the sport is too dangerous, others are calling for restrictor-plate racing to end. Others — like driver Austin Dillon — said the best solution is to slow down the cars a little. 

Daytona International Speedway will host the next restrictor-plate race in two months. No word yet on what changes — if any — NASCAR will implement in order to make the sport safer. 

What do you think: Is #NASCARTooUnsafe? Or is #NASCARTooFurious?
