Yep, very good news. I have no idea how he survived that. 

Well, let’s start with God having him in the palm of his hand.

And then we can give a thumbs up to the people who engineered and built the safety features of that car.

HANS device had alot to do with saving him. That initial impact is what killed Earnhardt.

What killed Earnhardt was loosening his straps heading for the finish line

There was lot more then the hans that saved him tonight.  The safety changes to the cars over the years helped too.

 

I'm sure moving the seat over 4 inches closer to the center when the car of tomorrow was introduced helped.  Or how they beefed up the "birdcage".  

 

 

Im sure they will take this car back and examine it and make any changes they need to in the next car of tomorrow that's suppose to be introduced in 2021

What killed him was his head whipping forward on impact and snapping his neck. HANS would have prevented it and that’s why they became mandatory.
