The Annual NASCAR Summit serves as the only annual meeting for representatives from the facilities hosting NASCAR Events. The Summit addresses topics related to operations, large-event / venue security, access control, risk management, training, fire suppression, extrication, and emergency medical services.

Over the course of our Summit, employees and volunteers come together to share experiences and gain additional knowledge regarding their roles in Operations, Fire & Safety, Medical, Security and other fields at their respective tracks.

NASCAR welcomes representatives from all tracks that host NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and IMSA road racing as well as NASCAR Home Tracks that host Developmental Series Events. We welcome the opportunity to share ideas and network with all of the members of the NASCAR family of tracks. Registrations will be confirmed and approved by each track as part of the registration process.

We look forward to seeing you in January!

Training Preparation is the single most important part of any organizations success. The groundwork that is laid sets the standard for the rest of the season and the success or failure when an incident occurs at your track.

Fractures of the Sternum in Motorsports: Concerns and Considerations
The occurrence of sternum fractures and dislocations in motor sports is a rare but significant concern for present and future competition. The anatomy and pathophysiology of sternal fractures raises concern for immediate and long term management of these injuries. If not recognized and treated appropriately these injuries and comorbidities can lead to loss of life.

This presentation and discussion will address anatomy, physiology, mechanism of injury, discussion of vascular and cardiac comorbidities as well as options for treatment. The focus of the discussion will be on accurate assessment and recognition of the injury, the need for emergent imaging, as well as operative and non-operative need for treatment.

The presentation should generate lively discussion and multidisciplinary suggestions regarding safety, engineering, transport, evaluation and care of drivers, pit crew members, and officials with rare but similar injuries.

We will demonstrate the number of driver injuries and transports to a higher level of care as a measure of injury severity. We can compare these numbers before & after the advent of the HANS & SAFER barriers. This study encompasses over 940 driver evaluations in the med center over 18 years.

Motorsports represent a very large gathering of diverse populations. As providers at these events, we must be prepared for the wide array of medical conditions and complaints that will present to EMS and care centers. Though most of these are relatively benign, a true emergency will occasionally present itself and test the medical response of even the best facilities. In this presentation, we will discuss some of the more common presentations as taken from trends seen at several tracks.

2:35 PM - 3:25 PMTRACK SERVICES: Training: Where are we going?

What is the difference in Proactive Training and Reactive Training? Proactive Training is seeing and preventing an unfortunate event before it happens. Reactive Training is waiting for the unfortunate event to happen, and then make corrections.

NASCAR Track Services has spent the last year overhauling the Track Services Training Program, formerly called “Advance Training Program” because there is a difference in Reactive and Proactive training. This presentation will introduce Track Administrators and Instructors to the revised training program for 2014. The last eight months has only limited us with time to what this program could be and now the foundation has been firmed up and the walls are being raised to build a usable program that will bring new members in an environment of a new skill; existing and longtime members another tool for them to use at the next event and instructors and coordinators an opportunity to create even better training events than they have before.

Speaker: Matt Stovcsik and Broadcast Panel
4:00 PM - 4:50 PM MEDICAL: Pre-Hospital Ultrasound: Ultrasound of the Shocked and Trauma Patient
Bedside clinician-performed ultrasound has become a well-studied and developed skill set in emergency medicine since the 1990s, but is now seeing increased use among pre-hospital providers. This is a logical extension of this useful technology as ultrasound devices become smaller, more portable, and higher quality. Currently, there is increasing utilization and research into the use of portable ultrasound devices in the pre-hospital setting for multiple pathologies including trauma, such as detecting interpretational fluid, and pneumothorax. Ultrasound provides a sequenced approach to the evaluation of the critically ill, shocked or trauma patient. Using the components of a sequenced ultrasound evaluation provides a visual representation of the causes of shock and hypotension that can be rapidly obtained and more effective treatment can be provided. This presentation will discuss some the principles of ultrasound, clinical applications, current topics, and future concepts.

10:30 AM - 11:20 AM MEDICAL: Occupant Kinematics in Rollover Crashes
Rollover crashes account for a large majority of the injuries sustained by vehicle occupants on the nation's highways. This lecture will review occupant kinematics within a rollover crash, identify the most common injuries sustained by vehicle occupants in rollover crashes over the last 10 years and educate the audience on the 5 year program which allows researchers to roll full size vehicles in a controlled manner to reproduce injuries seen commonly in the field. Although this program is aimed at the general driving public there are many lessons to be learned about the physics of body movement within the rollover environment and the most common injuries sustained. Injuries sustained by drivers who are involved in NASCAR events are protected (as they should be) however the NASCAR medical personnel who are in attendance of this lecture may be able to utilize this information to better mitigate injuries that occur in the rollover environment.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS


Stephen Toboz Jr. (SEAL, retired)
United States Navy


Stephen “Turbo” Toboz was born on April 24, 1969 in Lock Haven, PA. He graduated from Lock Haven High School Class 1987. He joined the United States Navy in January 1991 after 3 years of college. After graduating Electronic Technician ‘A’ School in Great Lakes, IL, he attended BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL) and graduated with Class 185 on December 18, 1992.

After BUD/S training, Petty Officer Toboz was assigned to SEAL Team Eight. His following tours consisted of Naval Special Warfare Development Group and Detachment Little Creek Reconnaissance Division. His expertises include Sniping, Close Quarters Battle, Breaching, skydiving, and combat diving.

PO Toboz has deployed to all parts of the world to include combat action in Bosnia and Afghanistan. In March of 2002 during Operation Anaconda, PO Toboz served as a member of a special operations unit conducting combat operations against enemy forces in hostile territory.

During this operation to constrict the enemy, PO Toboz was a member of a six-man team that flew back into an enemy stronghold atop a 12,000-foot mountain in order to rescue a captured teammate. Caught in automatic weapons crossfire upon insertion, Turbo immediately maneuvered against an enemy machine gun position engaging combatants until ordered to break contact by his team leader. While withdrawing he was hit by automatic weapons fire which shattered his lower leg ultimately resulting in amputation at a later date.

Non-ambulatory and nearly hypothermic, he pushed through exhaustion and intense pain to maneuver over one kilometer through icy and precipitous terrain, refusing morphine in order to preserve his security posture. His tactical expertise and courageous efforts significantly diminished the enemy fighters atop the mountain and contributed to their eventual defeat.

His personal awards include Silver Star for valor during Operation Anaconda on March 2002, Purple Heart, Navy Commendation with valor for operations in Bosnia, 2 Navy Achievement Medals, Combat Action Ribbon, Presidential Unit Citation, Naval Unit Citation, and Meritorious Unit Citation, and many others.

Mr. Stephen Toboz Jr. “Turbo” is now serving as an advanced Sniper training manager for special operations.
