I am only going by what a promoter told me in the past He said K & K insurance which was the major insurance co. for all the small tracks was bought by the Nasacar corporation which still sells insurance to non nascar tracks.
ASA may be self insured through there sister track program.
If most racers and small local sponsors knew all the risks when towing and racing a car they would think twice about it.
Can't live your life on the what if's but you can damn sure make it as safe as possible, had a trailer leave the motor home on the free way one time that could have been a real bad deal but thank God it was all my own stuff that got tore up when it went into a dirt bank and shot the race car out the front of the trailer. The 2" ratchet straps holding the car ripped in half from the impact like they were shoe strings.
If you are doing every thing as safe as you can or know how to then the rest is up to the guy up stairs.
Definitely not trying to argue with your info. I just had talked to a few people who have been associated with the ASA program, including a couple of promoters. Think the article I saw was in Stock Car Racing a couple of years ago. Made it sound like it was an individual deal. And the best part seemed to be the full race day coverage.
Wow, that sounds like quite a 'ride'.
You are definitely right though....make sure you do all that you can to be safe.
