Motorsports Safety Group To Host Wellness Seminar At Salem Speedway

Officials from the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) have announced that Motorsports Safety Group will be hosting the first in a series of scheduled Safety Seminars Saturday, April 21 at Salem Speedway.

Dr. Jason Cormier, founder of Motorsports Safety Group and a top neurosurgeon, will present a 30-minute session at the southern Indiana Salem half-mile oval, immediately following the day's Driver/Spotter meeting. The Seminar, scheduled for 10:45 a.m., will include general health and wellness material specifically related to race drivers and crew members.

Attendance for all entered drivers is required, and the seminar is open to all licensed participants. Crew Chiefs and car owners are encouraged to attend. Practice and qualifying activities for Sunday’s Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 will follow.

“I still race professionally, so my goal is to provide safety tips to drivers, pit crew and loyal fans that come out every weekend,” said Cormier. “While the sport has dangers, we can take precautions to provide a measure of safety.” 

The Salem seminar will be the first of four scheduled meetings with Motorsports Safety Group. Additional Safety Seminars are tentatively scheduled in conjunction with the Menards 200 at Toledo Speedway the weekend of May 19-20; Thursday, May 24 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Thursday, June 28 at Chicagoland Speedway.
