    Yanked this into a new thread. Don't wanna be side tracking NFL stuff with Nascar :)



    Spotters are required in Nascar due to the majorly restricted views the drivers have available. They have their HANS on and that limits them from normal side to side viewing.

    Yes, later in his career when his view was limited.

    Spotters do more than simply tell the driver their location. They tell the driver lap times and other things.

    You are right, but with Nascar the spotters ... every team has one so it equals out. If offense has comms and defense doesnt, thats not fair to the defense. Just like how they put a skirt on the QB's...
