Drivers that have experienced crashes in the newly introduced Next-Gen all says they have become worse due to the stiffness of the cars.

It was announced on Thursday that HMS driver Alex Bowman won’t race in the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series event at Talladega Superspeedway this weekend.

Bowman crashed hard last Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway and has experienced concussion-like symptoms ever since.

“I’m just ready for 2023” – Kyle Busch desperately wants out of at JGR “ASAP” after crashing out at Texas 

“After undergoing medical evaluation due to concussion-like symptoms, I will not be driving the No. 48 Ally Chevrolet in Talladega. 

I’m disappointed but know my health is the number one priority. I am committed to follow all medical guidance to ensure I can return to competition as soon as possible.”

Joe Gibbs Racing driver candidly called out NASCAR for not taking responsibility over drivers getting hurt.

Fans came in support of the JGR driver demanding changes from NASCAR to make driver safety priority. Kevin Harvick was also critical of NASCAR following Bowman suffering concussion-like symptoms.

“Pretty disappointing that our sanctioning body refuses to acknowledge or accept any responsibility for drivers getting hurt.”

“It’s the same THEY said. WE knew better. It’s wrong these drivers continue to get taken advantage of by the system.” Hamlin tweeted.

Alex Bowman described on the radio his crash at Texas, as the “hardest I’ve crashed anything in my entire life,”.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver injury is the  latest in a worrying trend for NASCAR’s recently released NextGen car, which debuted in 2022. 

Next-Gen safety concerns became more evident over the summer, when 23Xi No.45 Kurt Busch suffered a concussion in a qualifying crash at Pocono Raceway.
