A tire rocketed through the fence and into the stands, not good at all.

It looks like the entire front of the car was shredded and turned to shrapnel flying into the stands.  Ugh.

That tire and wheel combo weight around 90 pounds...flying at 200 MPH. I have not heard Mike Helton sound like that since he announced Earnhardt died. Someone..if not multiple people died in those stands today..I'm pretty confident of that.

Shocking.  A chain link fence is not up to stopping real dangers resulting from cars going 200 MPH with a tendency to wreck.

Wow, Popcorn...that's really, really bad.

Watching the video, that's a bit worse than I was expecting.

Jesus, that's awful. I know that race fans love crashes (whether they admit or not) but there comes a point when a crash is no longer entertainment.

Look at the first picture posted. There is a guy in the stands raising a fist in the air. He's above the blue number 32.

When an engine lands in your lap?

Link farked. Anyone have the video?
 
2013-02-23 05:03:04 PM
There's a longer video up now in the link.  They were trying to cause that crash for two laps.  Nascar is a farked up sport.  Players don't try to kill each other in normal sports.
 
2013-02-23 05:03:06 PM
Meh. It's nothing like those eastern european air show crashes where peoples guts are all over the ground .. and oh look a severed head!
 
2013-02-23 05:03:31 PM
They're lucky the stands weren't packed or it could have been a lot worse. Probably also would have been some people walking next to the fence when the engine came through.

The engine went through the fence as well.

it's not exactly a regular chain link fence

Yeah. Fortunately the cars were slowed somewhat but after the car took out the fence the tire flew right on through without obstruction.

/Ya, they showed the engine laying in the walkway, but no victims laying on the ground, even though you could see they were being treated.  Way to avoid film of people hurt because it would be devastating to your wallet.  Don't worry, people have cell phones. I'm sure film will come soon.

No kidding.  I was at the Flemington speedway (dirt track, been closed for awhile) when I was a kid and a tire came off one of the cars onto a ramp between the stands and killed a guy.  Poor guy never had a chance when something that big and heavy is coming that fast at you.

That's why people go to the races.

So THAT'S what happens when you make a right turn...............
 
2013-02-23 05:10:58 PM
The idiot driving the white car behind the leader looks like the cause of this crash. It looks like he was bumper-to-bumper with the black car through most of the final lap. He gave the car ahead of him a little nudge, and BOOM.

I hope they throw the book at him.  There's no excuse.
 
2013-02-23 05:11:14 PM
Since it's NASCAR, at least no one got any teeth knocked out.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - February 23, 2013 (WPVI) --Tony Stewart won a chaotic Nationwide Series race at Daytona International Speedway that ended with a frightening last-lap crash.


Regan Smith was leading coming to the checkered flag when he was turned sideways into the wall. Cars began wrecking all over the track, and rookie Kyle Larson's car went sailing into the fence that separates the track from the grandstands.

Stewart slid through the wreckage to the win.


When Larson's car came to a stop, it was missing its entire front end. There was a gaping hole in the fence, and a burning piece of car inside the fencing.


Shortly before the final three-lap sprint to the finish, Michael Annett was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation after a 13-car accident with five laps remaining

That's an idiotic comment. Perhaps the film crew has the slightest modicum of respect for people who are actively receiving medical attention?

Marty Smith @MartySmithESPN

I was just told by police if I didn't leave the grandstand area I'd be thrown in jail.
 
2013-02-23 05:11:51 PM
Isn't that the whole point of watching auto racing?

"Let me put it this way: when else am I going to see a twenty-six car collision and not be *in* the God damn thing?
