“It’s currently at the (NASCAR) R&D Center, and our safety experts will … look for anything that might give us clues or some indication of exactly what the challenge was there with Aric and his back,” Scott Miller, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition, said Monday morning on “The Morning Drive” on SiriusXM NASCAR.

“I’m certain they’ll interview him and ask him about all the particulars of how tight his belts were and all the rest of that.

“When we have these situations or even situations where someone doesn’t get hurt, we really like to investigate as best as possible into the accident and see how we can get better.”

Miller praised the work of the safety crews and medical personnel.

“To take the precautions that they did, fortunately Aric was able to talk with them over there and explain the situation so they acted accordingly and we were really happy with the way all that went,” he said.
