Human nature is to be reactionary rather than preventative.  After the incident at Bristol where spectator Erin Vandyke was clipped by Kyle Busch, maybe we'll see NASCAR and the tracks crack down, once again, on Hot Pit Passes.

You want to know what the problem is?  Vandyke posted online that she was "in a safe area".  No she wasn't, she was in the pits while a race was in progress.  There is nothing safe about them.

At Bristol, it's even worse.  The infield is the garage and there are four ways drivers can enter that area from the track.  And, they use them all.

There are disabled cars entering the garage, gasoline, compressed air tanks and lug nuts that become missiles when they get caught under tires as cars peel out.

I can't tell you how many times I'm getting ready to call a pit stop and there are a bunch of fans hanging over the wall in an empty pit stall watching and taking pictures.

I just shake my head in disbelief.

Frankly, we're lucky that Erin Vandyke wasn't hurt worse.  And, instead of getting her desired apology from Kyle Busch, she needs to apologize for dragging him into the fantasy world where the pits are for the fans not the teams.
