Yes, JACCUS still exists and I believe NASCAR still maintains some form of relationship with them, but they seem to be more of a hinderance than anything else. I don't believe they are bothered by or with them very much. I believe NASCAR does FAR BETTER without them, that with them!

About the best thing I could suggest to find out, might be to contact NASCAR and inquire about the safety of the Generation 6 Car and contact whatever sanctioning body, series that controls LMP racing and make similar inquires, then compare the two. I don't see any why both should not agree to provide the requested information.
