Meet Dr. Fiege: Physician to help further enhance medical efforts
RELATED: NASCAR bolsters emergency response system NASCAR again has upped its level of medical commitment and response, working in conjunction with American Medical Response to announce that Dr. Angela Fiege will serve as the newly appointed NASCAR/AMR Safety Team Medical Director. The Indianapolis-based doctor has served as a physician medical consultant in NASCAR for the past two years, supporting both the infield care centers and on-track response at all NASCAR-sponsored race events. Her new role will include collaboration with NASCAR Medical Liaisons and NASCAR Consulting Physicians in addition to guiding the services provided by AMR. In February, NASCAR announced it was partnering with AMR to expand its capabilities of medical support and enhance on-track incident response -- Fiege's new position is another component of that agreement. Drivers had previously asked for a physician who traveled to the majority of most race weekends as a way to develop familiarity. A lifelong motorsports fan, Fiege said she is enthusiastic about developing her new role and enhancing the sport's medical program. She has been trackside at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a decade working with both NASCAR and open-wheel drivers. She was awarded this year's "Above and Beyond Award" for her work presenting lectures on driver and crew safety at NASCAR's annual summits. "The great thing about this job is that it is an open book waiting to be written," Fiege told NASCAR.com. "I've had the good fortune to get to know a lot of good people along the way. And I think collectively, we'll work to make this something I hope that people who do other forms of motorsport will look to NASCAR and say, 'That was great, let's implement some of their ideas in how we manage our drivers as well.' " Fiege certainly brings a knowledgeable and diverse background to the position. She began her career as a paramedic and then became a nurse before serving 20 years as a flight nurse for Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital. She then got her medical doctor degree and has managed emergency care at the hospital for the past 12 years. Part of Fiege's impressive credentialing is that she is board certified in both emergency medicine and neuro critical care. "I wouldn't trade that for the world ," Fiege said of her incredibly diverse experience. "My pathway through life is kind of convoluted, but every step of the way you learn something not only medically, but also in interacting with people. "The things I learned on the street as a medic translated into how I approached people as a nurse. And what I learned as a nurse has been a great background for me as I practice as a physician. I feel I'm very lucky and it's been a great way to develop a career." Not only will Fiege oversee the at-track medical response, she also hopes to develop a broader health and fitness program for not only NASCAR's star drivers, but their family members and teammates as well. "One of the things we hope to accomplish is developing a state-of-the-art, type motorsports medical program," she said. "Not only for the drivers but for the sport in general. There are some things we can do for drivers who spend a lot of time on the road to not only enhance their health, but also their families' health. And there are some exciting things to think about moving forward. "There are always things you need to do for a driver involved in an incident, of course, but also a lot of things that go on with drivers that are difficult to see. At most people's forefront are concussions and head injuries and things like that. There are certain injury patterns that are peculiar to motorsports, and we want to investigate in terms of treatment and ways to prevent those injuries. The natural evolution of that is how it translates into safety equipment used in civilian life."
The air up there: Record motorcycle jump planned for 'Dega
BUY TICKETS: See this event, races at Talladega Alex Harvill is used to making the most of wide expanses. His pastime of jumping motorcycles great distances requires it, and the two leaps he's made that stand as current world records have both taken place in the sweeping sand dunes of his home state of Washington. But when Harvill wanted to bring his high-flying show to NASCAR, making the most of his Monster Energy backing and the energy drink maker's sponsorship deal of stock-car racing's top series, Talladega Superspeedway seemed likely to be a natural fit. Combine the 2.66-mile facility's wide stretches of asphalt, its tendency for wild on-track action and its rabid fan base even more so make it an obvious choice. Harvill will attempt to set a world record for the longest ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jump on May 7 before the start of the GEICO 500 (2 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), aiming to go 400 feet or farther. The jump will take place in the fan-frenzied zone called Talladega Boulevard, and the timing is even more audacious -- the 24-year-old rider is scheduled to make his leap in the five-minute window between the national anthem and the command to start engines. "I want to be under the most eyes as possible," Harvill told NASCAR.com, "make it on TV and kick off the NASCAR race with the biggest jump ever." Until this week, Harvill had never been to Talladega, "but I have on NASCAR video games, so it's like I've been here before because I've raced it many times. But this is my first time here, and it's very impressive with how big it is." Harvill currently holds two world records for motorcycle distance jumping -- a 425-foot leap to set the bar for ramp-to-dirt jumps in 2012 and a 297.5-foot distance to establish the dirt-to-dirt benchmark a year later. The current ramp-to-ramp record is 351 feet, set in 2008 by Australian rider Robbie Maddison, but Harvill has designs on more than the target distance of 400 feet. "I want to go for the furthest jump and then to keep going," says Harvill, who projects a target speed of 106 mph to achieve his Talladega goal. "My goal is to go 500 (feet), and I'm hoping Monster and NASCAR provide me platforms to keep going further and further."

Comcast, NASCAR join forces to build up Bristol
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Joining more than 1,500 local Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners to "make change happen" this weekend, the NASCAR industry and select NASCAR XFINITY Series™ drivers will be supporting the 16th annual Comcast Cares Day , the nation's largest single-day corporate volunteer event. These volunteers will participate in 15 different projects across the Greater Knoxville area to celebrate the day, joining more than 100,000 volunteers at nearly 1,000 projects across the country. Among the events in the area, Comcast volunteers helped assemble housing materials at a Habitat for Humanity "ReStore" Center for a local family in Johnson City on Friday. NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers who are racing in the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway joined the project to support Comcast's efforts. "The NASCAR family has been so welcoming to Comcast and programs like Comcast Cares Day that are important to us as a company, and the outpouring of support at this year’s events near Bristol Motor Speedway are no exception," explained Matt Lederer, Executive Director, Sports Brand Marketing, Comcast. "Participation from our drivers and support from NASCAR is a great addition to this project and represents the heart of everyone coming together to volunteer in the community." Comcast and NASCAR volunteers are also donating their time to support the Appalachia Service Project on Saturday, April 22, through the "Race to Build" project at Bristol Motor Speedway. Volunteers will build homes that will serve families in the Bristol area. Select NASCAR drivers and Comcast employees joined the group on Saturday morning to "wave the green flag" on the start of the project and assist volunteers in the morning in the fan midway at the track. Drivers Brennan Poole, Tyler Reddick, JJ Yeley, Garrett Smithley, Harrison Rhodes, Joey Gase, Ross Chastain, Justin Allgaier, Jordan Anderson and Quinn Houff participated in the weekend's service projects. As a part of the NASCAR Race To Green initiative, NASCAR also donated trees to be planted at the family home. "The NASCAR community is so strong and they're willing to lend a helping hand at any time," Poole said. "So for me to be a part of this, and do cool things like this thanks to Comcast’s partnership with the XFINITY Series is really special." "It's great that through XFINITY's partnership we can come out on a race day and participate in Comcast Cares Day," said Allgaier. "Being a part of the XFINITY Series allows us to be involved in so many different events and projects we wouldn't normally have the opportunity to, including what we're doing here today, helping out some local Bristol families through the Appalachia Service Project." Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day -- it's the culmination of Comcast NBCUniversal's commitment to volunteerism that began when the company was founded more than 50 years ago. From using technology to create positive change, such as wiring community centers and libraries and teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth, to beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer on this day, and throughout the year, to make a lasting impact. This year, the Company expects more than 100,000 volunteers to participate in approximately 900 projects across the country and around the world . To date, volunteers have contributed nearly 5 million volunteer hours at 7,700 projects since Comcast Cares Day began in 2001. "We are proud to team up with so many incredible organizations this year as we celebrate our 16th annual Comcast Cares Day," said Doug Guthrie, Regional Senior Vice President, Comcast. "We are thankful for the participants who are stepping up and helping to make a difference in our community." The Comcast Foundation will also provide grants to local community partner organizations across the country on behalf of everyone who volunteers on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s community partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year. To date, the Comcast Foundation has awarded more than $20 million in grants to local non-profit organizations who have served as partners on Comcast Cares Day.
