National Hot Rod Association Mandates Eject Helmet Removal System for 2010
Date:11/30/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The Eject Helmet Removal System (Eject), by Shock Doctor, is now required equipment in the Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock Car and Pro Stock Motorcycle classes of the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, as well as for Top Alcohol dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car drivers in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. Eject is the only product that allows medical caregivers at race tracks and elsewhere, the ability to quickly and safely remove closed faced helmets, without any pressure or traction applied to the spine.

"Driver safety goes beyond simply wearing a helmet," said Patrick Lynch, motorsport director for Shock Doctor. "NHRA is the largest motorsports sanctioning body in the world, and its recent Eject mandate for racers will influence safety awareness, as they take to the tracks this season."

It is estimated that 350-400 NHRA drivers will be equipped with Eject as the 2010 season starts.

"Eject appears to be a progressive safety tool, and we are glad to make it available to our racers," said Glen Gray, vice president of technical operations for the NHRA.

Drivers in the professional Indy Racing League, NASCAR, Grand-Am Road Racing, and riders in both AMA Pro Motocross and Supercross are also required to use Eject within their helmets. Eject has a rollout program underway to support the riding and EMT communities on a nationwide basis. For more information, please visit www.ejectsafety.com.
