A tragedy became an opportunity when Robert Hubbard used a horrible accident as a catalyst for changes in race car safety.
The retired engineering professor created a safety device that is used around the world in different auto-racing sports. His invention is the reason for his induction into the The Sports Car Club of America's Hall of Fame.
Hubbard, despite his contributions to the field, has never raced a car in his life.
Prior to his work at MSU, Hubbard worked at General Motors for six years and learned about car safety.
"He did not want to die that way," said Hubbard.
After Jacquemart's death, Hubbard and Downing created a device that would protect race car drivers in the case of a crash.
"It addresses the most common reason that race drivers were dying," Hubbard said.
When race cars crash, the body is pulled back and the neck goes forward, exposing the neck to a fracture or break.
The HANS device works to limit the movement of the neck and head areas during impact.
"(In a crash) you want to keep the head close to the torso," Hubbard said.
Hubbard and Downing split their work on the HANS.
Hubbard worked on the scientific research while Downing oversaw the business side.
Hubbard and Downing were both working at their day jobs and spent their after hours on the creation of the device.
Hubbard and Downing were inducted to the The Sports Car Club of America's Hall of Fame on March 8 in a ceremony in Charlotte, N.C.
