NASCAR Nationwide Race Marred by Big Crash, Spectactors Injured [UPDATE: 28 Injured]
The car you see going up into the catch fence was the 32 of Kyle Larson. The car basically cut in half, and worse, Larson's engine ended up on the spectator side of the fence, as well as a tire. The good news is that Larson, and all the other drivers in the melee, are OK (although Michael Annett was taken to the hospital for observation due to an earlier wreck). Unfortunately, spectators are injured. At this point, there are no confirmed reports about how many are injured or how severe the injuries are. We will keep you posted as things develop.
UPDATE: The Associated Press is reporting that at least 12 are injured. There are many rumors and unconfirmed reports on Twitter that there are more, but for now that is the most concrete number available.
UPDATE 2: At a press conference this evening, Daytona track president Joie Chitwood stated that there were 28 injured. 14 were treated at the track, while 14 others were taken to the hospital. Other reports state that 2 of those injured are critical, one of which is a child.
