NASCAR is ready to take a look at Mark Martin's scary crash from over the weekend.
Martin's car went off the track and eventually crashed into the end of a short, narrow barrier on the interior side of pit road at Michigan International Speedway. The side of the car was essentially impaled by the end of the wall, which was exposed because of a gap in the barrier that allows vehicles to enter and exit.
Martin was able to walk away. The worst of the impact was just behind the driver's side door.
Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's vice president for competition, says Martin's team will be consulted, and aerial photos will be studied.
Pemberton says Sunday's incident is a reminder that the work on safety doesn't stop.
