Famed engineer turns eye to football – Yes this is related to NASCAR

Dr. Dean Sicking, – anyone recognize his name? – a highly acclaimed engineer who helped revolutionize safety in auto racing, says the race is on at several universities across the country to design a football helmet that will dramatically reduce brain injuries at every level of the sport.

Sickling says the current design of football helmets can be improved greatly with proper testing, along with state-of-the-art materials and engineering standards.

So who is Dr. Sicking and why should we believe him? Sicking, who works at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, is a nationally recognized engineering professor.

Dr. Sickling is also the man behind the design and development of the SAFER barrier in NASCAR. 

His design and development of the SAFER barrier was a renaissance for auto racing. SAFER stands for Steel And Foam Energy Reduction. The barrier is a collapsible wall used by all major speedways today. ESPN
