(Continued)

Dawson expressed a willingness for track officials to be more vigilant in the attempt to keep unfit drivers off the track. That could be a step in the right direction. Or it could merely be saying what people expect to hear.

For the confidence of the community, the drivers and the fans, speedway track officials should create and publicize a detailed plan to better assure that an incident like the one that occurred Oct. 12 doesn't happen again.
