Benson reaction in NASCAR stopping all racing back to yellow

"I think it is a good move by NASCAR and probably a few years overdue. But you know they did the right thing and I don't think it is ever too late to do the right thing. I mean it was just getting to the point where racing back to the yellow was just too dangerous.

"If a guy is sitting there wrecked on the track we need to get ambulances and safety workers moving to see if he is OK. We don't need to delay them so we can see if a lapped car or two can get a lap back. What happened with Dale Jarett at New Hampshire was scary and I think it was the final straw with NASCAR.

"I don't know all the details yet on what they have in mind to replace racing back to the yellow. But, I hope there is a way we can keep the excitement in our races while keeping them as safe as we can. Like I said, It's a smart move."
