WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Watkins Glen International is contemplating safety changes in the aftermath of the violent wreck on the last lap of the Sprint Cup race there just over a week ago.
Track president Michael Printup says he hasn't had his annual postrace meeting with NASCAR.
Printup says the steel Armco barrier that lines much of the 2.45-mile circuit ``gave a lot more than a Safer barrier does'' when David Ragan and David Reutimann collided. Printup says estimations are that it gave 3-4 feet and ``you've got to look at that.''
Both drivers were treated and released at the track, but both were visibly shaken when they limped away from the wreckage.
Watkins Glen made several safety upgrades following violent crashes in Cup races in 2008 and 2009.
