    A lot of race drivers are alive today because of Bill Simpson and his safety products. Particularly when it came to dying from fire. Nomex. Crash helmets. Safety belts. He pushed everyone in the industry to do better.

    And NASCAR basically tried to ruin his company after the Earnhardt crash.

    Racer and safety pioneer Bill Simpson dies at 79
