The most important part of the whole story.....

 

We spend tens of thousands on cars and go-fast parts and we dont want to spend a couple thousand on things to protect our bodies and save our life, Barnetts brother Mark tell us.

“We [racers] are reactive, not pro-active” Barnett laments. If you take anything away from his experience, let it be that safety equipment matters. Spend that last $1,000 on a better fire suit instead of a bigger turbo.
