06:42 PM ET 10.26 | Sprint Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski did not mince words when he was asked about the new concussion policy NASCAR would be implementing next year. Although he didn't completely reject the idea of concussion testing and claimed he'd try to keep on open mind about the topic, Keselowski did say he felt uncomfortable about the idea of doctors having the power to prevent a driver from racing.

He needs to view this as a protective measure.........Even though cars keep getting safer every year, the driver's heads still get banged around a lot in crashes.....and that will continue.

Scanning drivers, when all is okay, for future comparison is a good idea.......concussions are a problem in every sport and need to be taken very seriously.......as they happen........without the "good condition" scan, it would riskier to give a driver the okay to return..

A scan of Brad's head would reveal that he doesn't have a brain

What is surprising is that they haven't started this years ago. The NFL is facing major litigation (and has been for sometime) from its former athletes in regards to concussions. How long until NASCAR faces the same issue?
