Organization owns 12 tracks in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series Play: NASCAR Fantasy Live Officials at International Speedway Corporation, which owns 12 tracks where NASCAR's premier Sprint Cup Series races, said Tuesday that the company has a "significant plan" in development to expand its use of impact-diffusing barriers in the interest of safety. John Saunders, ISC president, said in a statement that the project will focus first on its two largest tracks -- 2.66-mile Talladega Superspeedway and 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway, where Kyle Busch's severe crash and resulting injuries during last Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race renewed the focus on safety measures. In a statement provided by ISC, Saunders said the plan would emphasize "the installation of additional impact-absorbing technologies including but not limited to SAFER barriers (Steel and Foam Energy Reduction). We will utilize all available tools to ensure the safety of the drivers and our fans. It will remain our top priority." Saunders also indicated that a "thorough review of our other ISC facilities will continue with the focus to prioritize each track's most critical areas first." That focus will become sharper at the next ISC tracks hosting Sprint Cup and other NASCAR national series events -- one-mile Phoenix International Raceway, March 13-15; and two-mile Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, March 20-22. "ISC is working very closely with NASCAR and industry experts to identify areas for additional safety protections," Saunders said. "As we finalize our plans, we will communicate them to the drivers and necessary stakeholders ahead of our races at each ISC facility." Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III emphatically said Saturday, hours after Busch's crash, that his track would expand its use of impact-absorbing protective barriers. On Monday, Talladega and Kentucky Speedway followed suit with their plans, followed a day later by Atlanta Motor Speedway, site of this weekend's tripleheader for all three NASCAR national series. The Auto Club track expanded its use of energy-absorbing walls ahead of its 2014 race, after Denny Hamlin suffered a broken back when his car hit an unprotected concrete retaining wall the year before. The inside-wall area of Turn 4, just ahead of the pit road entrance, is now covered with SAFER barriers.

Unparalleled tool technology innovator joins family of official NASCAR partners RELATED: NASCAR Official Release From the high-pressure stakes in the garage to split-second decisions on pit road, NASCAR teams are driven by the most skilled pit crew members and technicians in the motorsports industry. Today, the unveiling of a new partnership will welcome a staple in the garage for more than 50 years to the family of Official NASCAR Partners. NASCAR and Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in reliable and innovative power tools , announced a multi-year partnership designating Ingersoll Rand as the "Official Power Tools of NASCAR." The agreement also designates Ingersoll Rand as an Official Partner of the International Motorsports Association (IMSA) and as a contingency sponsor in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Touring & Weekly Series. Ingersoll Rand's power tools revolutionized NASCAR pit stop tire changes at their introduction to the sport in 1959, and the company quickly became a familiar sight in the garage selling and servicing the tools for peak performance. "Ingersoll Rand has been rooted in racing for decades and this renewed relationship celebrates the tireless work of pit crew mechanics and passionate race fans across all levels of racing," said John Evans, president of power tools at Ingersoll Rand. "We know how important tool performance is in racing – if your tools perform, your vehicle performs. We are now putting high -performance Ingersoll Rand tools into the hands of the best auto technicians in the world while engaging fans who have a passion for cars." In 1995, Ingersoll Rand was made famous in the garage when Jeff Gordon and then crew chief Ray Evernham's "Rainbow Warriors" pit crew had a series of unmatched victories, rooted in spectacular pit road performances. Evernham helped Ingersoll Rand in 1998 introduce the latest generation of pit stop tire changing tools , the Thunder Gun, to teams seeking more power, speed and durability under pressure, which is still used today and offers the highest performance. "Ingersoll Rand, a global brand that has a rich history in NASCAR, understands how to utilize our sport to effectively connect with the racing community," said Jim O'Connell, chief sales officer, NASCAR. "The new partnership reinforces their desire to engage fans across all levels of our sport and we are proud to welcome them to our family of Official NASCAR Partners." As part of Ingersoll Rand's official partnership with NASCAR, the company will be at the track each weekend providing expert tool support, service, new tool demonstrations for pit crews and will offer fans the opportunity to try tools first hand. Additionally, Ingersoll Rand will launch its Home Tracks Text-to-Win contest for fans at tracks throughout the season. Fans will have opportunities to win Ingersoll Rand prize packs and meet-and-greets with pit crews and other high-profile racing personalities.
