Actually the whole team was still wearing Impact. I was in a big fire in a late model stock car. I was involved in a wreck and my dry sump hoses were tore off the block. Car went up in a huge ball of fire while I was still moving. I was wearing Impact at the time and only suffered minor burns. There is some good reading on Impact's website.
