TOLEDO, OH - ARCA RE/MAX Series officials today announced new safety measures effective immediately beginning with the February 10, 2002 Discount Auto Parts 200 at Daytona Int'l Speedway.

In addition to approved head and neck restraint devices mandated for all ARCA RE/MAX Series drivers in October of 2001, all over-the-wall RE/MAX Series officials will wear full-coverage fire-retardant uniforms and helmets. All race team fuel fillers and catch-can personnel will also wear the aforementioned safety apparatus, with RE/MAX Series officials highly recommending that all additional over-the-wall race team personnel be so protected.

Age eligibility requirements are also changing. No drivers under 18 years of age will be approved to compete on RE/MAX Series tracks greater than one mile in length without prior experience in sanctioned superspeedway competition through 2003. Beyond 2003, no drivers under 18 will compete on tracks greater than one mile in length.

In addition, ARCA will be hosting a safety seminar at noon eastern time on Sunday, March 3rd at Toledo Speedway. All are welcome.
