TOLEDO, Ohio (Aug. 1, 2017) -- Officials from the Automobile Racing Club of America announced today that Motorsports Safety Group would be hosting the third in a series of scheduled Safety Seminars Saturday, August 5 at Winchester Speedway.
Dr. Jason Cormier, founder of Motorsports Safety Group and one of the country’s leading neurosurgeons,will present a 30-minute session at 12:15 p.m., immediately following the Saturday drivers meeting. The Seminar will include material specifically related to head injury, and preventative measures for race drivers and crew members. Attendance for all entered drivers is required, and the seminar is open to all ARCA licensed participants. ARCA Racing Series crew chiefs and car owners are encouraged to attend.
Recent head injuries to drivers in the sport have inspired Dr. Cormier to host the Safety Seminar at Winchester and discuss conditions involving concussion and other types of head injury. As a renowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Cormier specializes in injury to the head, neck and spine.
Dr. Cormier formed the Motorsports Safety Group during the off-season to create a means by which to promote health, wellness and preventative practices within the sport of auto racing. Dr. Cormier crafted this strategic partnership with the ARCA Safety Initiative Program to form a “Motorsports Healthcare Education Plan,” a high profile, interactive activation designed to reach millions of race fans throughout the country.
The Motorsports Safety Group’s support of the ARCA Safety Initiative was announced at the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show in December of 2016.
