A horrifying wreck happened on the last lap at Daytona. LOTS of torn up cars but once again all the drivers walked away from the carnage. The personnel are still accessing the injuries to the folks in the Grandstand where Larson's car engine and tire went into and through the catch fencing. This is a dangerous sport not only for the drivers and crew but can be for the fans. This is reminisient of Bobby Allison going into the catch fencing at Talladega in 1987. Praying the fans are okay.

A somber celebration for Tony's victory.

Well...

I figured all was well when all the drivers walked away, but when I saw them all (starting with Tony) talking so grimly about the fans hoping all were ok, I figured something was up. Helton says they transported some to the local medical center.

Now that is karma. All those fans who are just waiting for the next great wreck get a taste of what they come to see.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it Just pee on it and walk away.

I agree. My parents were at the race. They hardly know anything about NASCAR, they are just curious and wanted to see a race. They have a house down there and have never been to a race before. I can guarantee they have never hoped for a wreck, thankfully they are fine. <_<

Agreed, that's just downright mean on so many levels.

Hope they had a good time!

Story in AJC says 11 injured, 6 seriously. Some even in the upper deck. Yowsa.

So everyone that goes to races whether it be NASCAR, motorcycle, go kart, bicycle, etc are just looking for a wreck? You are showing your ignorance, not at all shocking I must admit... Posted Image

I have been going to NASCAR races since 1969, the year of the first race at Talladega. I can honestly say I do not and have never gone to races nor have I watched races on TV hoping to see "the big one" or wrecks of any kind. There is so much more to NASCAR than wrecks. Some folks might like to see wrecks but to make a general statement like that is a stereotype of all NASCAR fans. Plus, those who were injured might not be among those.

Two are in critical condition, one of which is a 14 yr old in surgery for a head injury. Many others with severe injuries and/or burns from the hot liquid that spewed out of the car that hit the fence.

I hope they are all ok, especially the 14 year old little girl. Please keep us updated Karen. Thanks!

Marty Smith is reporting on ESPN SportsCenter. "At least 28 spectators were injured". Still only 2 reported to be in critical. THANK GOODNESS. No update on their injuries, tho.

GOOD NEWS: The 2 fans initially listed as Critical have been upgraded to Stable.

Twelve fans transported to Halifax Hospital.

Have you seen the video a 16 yr old spectator was taking with his phone? Shows the people being up against the fence and the debris flying into the stands. SCARY!!!

The video that was first removed from Youtube by Nascar is insane. The link above shows it via a mobile connection so it's fuzzy. But the "desktop" version is insane...it shows where the tire landed in the stands. Scary stuff.
