A few years ago I read an article where the airplane industry was actually studying the high tech energy dispersed car cages found in the NASCAR vehicles. With verging that technology, combined with proper engine placement, they claimed there should never be an small plane crash accident with a fatality. Every year there are many cool innovations documented. Read about 10 such innovations at: Nascar Innovations
