“We support this potential disciplinary action as a significant indication that the NFL takes these issues very seriously and intends to hold teams responsible for allowing cultures of violence and abuse,” Schatz and Speier wrote.

Landon Neu, 8, of Jacksonville, Fla., experiences what it's like to be behind the wheel of a race car at the NASCAR Acceleration Nation interactive display at Daytona International Speedway, Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015, in Daytona Beach, Fla. Students who like NASCAR take note: You need a lot of geometry and physics to get a race car to go 200 laps at speeds that can top 200 mph. In a nod to the often overlooked science behind races like Sunday’s Daytona 500, NASCAR is announcing a yearslong commitment to promote “STEM” in classrooms.

“A lot of people see cars racing and they love the sport for the sporting element of cars winning, and racing and passing,” Dewar said. “Behind all of that is pure science. It’s the horse power, and it’s drag and it’s aerodynamics.”
