Nascar Daytona Crash: Ten-Car Crash At Daytona Track Injures 29 [00:51]
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.

Nascar Daytona multi-car crash [00:52]
At least 28 fans have been injured in a multi-car crash during a Nascar race at Daytona in the US state of Florida. Large pieces of debris - including a tyre - flew into the spectator stands when one of the cars hit a fence separating the track from the seats. Race officials said 14 people had to be treated in hospital. The accident happened on the eve of the Dayton 500 - one of the most famous Nascar events. The officials later said the main race would go ahead. The President of Daytona International Speedway, Joie Chitwood, and Nascar's Steve O'Donnell addressed a press conference 'Freaky' The crash happened on the last lap of the second-tier race in Daytona as the cars approached the chequered flag. The driver in the leading car apparently tried to stop others overtaking him by moving sideways. One vehicle then hit another and flew into the fence. Pieces of debris were thrown into the stands and smoke from burning engines clouded the area. "It was freaky," fan Rick Harpster told the Associated Press news agency. "I saw a tyre fly straight over the fence into the stands. I knew it was going to be severe." Another eyewitness described people running and seeing a girl completely covered in engine oil. The race was earlier stopped for about 20 minutes following a separate accident in which one driver was injured. The crash happened on the last lap of the race Continue reading the main story Related Stories Patrick starts Daytona 500 on pole Formula 1 returns to United ...

Buckpasser - 1966 Horse Of The Year [11:49]
Buckpasser (1963--1978) was an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who won nine of his eleven race starts for international record winnings for a two-year-old of $586090. He was leading broodmare sire in 1983, 1984 and 1989. Buckpasser was a bay colt that was bred and owned by Ogden Phipps and foaled at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky. He was by the Horse of the Year winner Tom Fool, and his dam was the stakes-winning mare Busanda, by the Triple Crown winner War Admiral. Busanda's second dam was the Blue Hen broodmare La Troienne (FR). He was a half-brother to several other horses that included the stakes-winners Bupers (won $221688) and Bureaucracy ($156635). Buckpasser was inbred in the fourth generation (4m x 4f) to the French racehorse and an influential sire Teddy. Racing official Dr. Manual Gilman said of him, "Generally, every horse has about a hundred faults of conformation. I would defy anybody to pick a flaw in Buckpasser." Renowned horse painter Richard Stone Reeves said, "Buckpasser was the most perfectly proportioned Thoroughbred I have ever seen." Only two horses, Secretariat and Affirmed, have since been "in a class with Buckpasser". en.wikipedia.org

1990 Pimlico Special : ABC Broadcast [17:41]
Criminal Type scored a far-reaching victory in the Pimlico Special Saturday. The 5-year-old son of Alydar ran the fastest 1 3/16 miles in Pimlico history, sent his trainer, Wayne Lukas, over the $100-million mark in career purses and exposed a story about how fine the line is between being a hero and a heel as a jockey's agent. Under Jose Santos, who was riding him for the first time, Criminal Type shadowed Ruhlmann all the way around, edged past him with about 50 yards left and won by a neck in the first $1-million race ever run in Maryland. Ruhlmann, the second betting choice at 2-1, finished 1 1/4 lengths ahead of De Roche, a 34-1 shot who finished 1 1/2 lengths in front of Mi Selecto. Opening Verse, made the 3-2 favorite by a crowd of 15850 on a cool, overcast day, flattened out in the stretch and wound up fifth, beaten by about 3 1/4 lengths. Wind Splitter finished sixth, and after him in the 10-horse field came Silver Survivor, Gorgeous, With Approval and Music Merci. Criminal Type's time was 1:53, breaking by a fifth of a second the record that Blushing John set in winning the Special last year. The Special is the same distance as the Preakness, which will be run here next Saturday, and the fastest Preakness times have been Secretariat's unofficial 1:53 2/5 clocking in 1973 and Tank's Prospect's matching time in 1985. Criminal Type was the fourth betting choice and paid $17.40, $6.80 and $5.20. Ruhlmann paid $4.80 and $4.60, and De Roche's show price was $10.20. A ...
