Nascar Daytona Crash: Ten-Car Crash At Daytona Track Injures 29

On the last lap of the Nationwide Nascar race, competitor Regan Smith was turned sideways and took out several racers behind him, causing a pile-up. Large chunks of driver Kyle Larson's car landed in the grandstands, and one of his tyres appeared to fly over the fence and into the stands. His car went airborne when it hit the pile-up and it was flung into the fence that separates the track from the seats. The car itself had its entire front end sheared off, with the burning engine wedged through a gaping hole in the fence. Larson managed to climb out of the wreckage afterwards unscathed. Race officials said 14 fans were taken to hospital, with another 14 being treated on the scene at the Florida track. Driver Michael Annett, of the Richard Petty Motorsports team, was being treated in hospital for bruising on his chest, his team said. Dan Wetzel, Yahoo Sports national columnist, spoke to fans in the damaged grandstand.
