Fan Runs Onto Racetrack [00:50]
A man ran across the track during the stretch run of the feature race at Del Mar on Thursday, barely escaping contact with several horses that were driving for the finish line. The man, carrying a duffel bag filled with personal belongings, jumped the outer rail as the horses reached the top of the stretch. As the field got closer, he began running in the same direction as the horses and, about 30 yards before the wire, with Chris McCarron trying to avoid him aboard the race winner, Sea Of Serenity, the man flung the bag behind him, into the path of another horse. The second-place finisher, Factual Attraction, missed the man by inches, and he was then missed by two other trailing horses--Toga Toga Toga and Regal Gentry--who simultaneously passed on either side of him. The man, later identified as Russell Howard Caputo, 38, a onetime resident of Beverly Hills, then jumped the inner rail, ran across the turf course and was apprehended near the tote board by a member of the starting-gate crew and taken into custody. The name of the race was the Royal Order of Jesters Purse. William Knowles, director of security for the track, said Caputo was turned over to the San Diego County sheriff's office. "There are indications," Knowles said, "that he's suffering emotional problems. When he was taken into custody, he made vague references to self-destruction.

Rolex24 From the SuperStretch into Bus Stop Chicane Night Daytona 2013 [04:07]
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The chicane, located near the end of the Superstretch, traditionally produces many of the most dramatic moments of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, America's most prestigious sports car race and the kick-off event to the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16. During the first day of the 49th running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona on Saturday, Jan. 29, sports car fans will have a great place to view all of the action in the chicane from atop the 46-foot high Budweiser Party Porch. Located across from the chicane on the Superstretch, the 20000-square foot Budweiser Party Porch platform will be open to fans for the first time during the sports car race and provide a prime viewing spot of the drivers navigating their way through one of the tricky portions of the 3.56-mile road course. "The Budweiser Party Porch is going to be a great spot to enjoy all the drama of the Rolex 24 At Daytona," track President Joie Chitwood III said. "Entering and exiting the chicane has always been one of the more challenging areas on the track and the Budweiser Party Porch will now provide a great vantage point for fans." The Budweiser Party Porch, which will be open on Saturday, Jan. 29 between noon and midnight, will be available to ticket holders with garage pass upgrades. Garage access will be available for purchase at the Sprint FANZONE ticket booth and trams will provide transportation from the Sprint FANZONE to the Budweiser Party Porch. For ...
