Fans injured in daytona crash on final lap of nationwide race

At least 33 fans were injured Saturday at the NASCAR Daytona National Speedway when a 12-car crash thrusted one racer’s car into the stands. Debris and engine parts flew into the stands, injuring the audience members. The crash happened in the final lap of the Daytona 500 race when drivers Brad Keselowski (22) and Kyle Larson (32) competed for the checkered flag. Larson’s vehicle spun out of control and went engine-first into the stands. The races continued Sunday after cleanup of the crashes. Speedway President Joie Chitwood III announced that the track would not move any fans for the next races because the area’s security maintained a buffer space between the fans and the catch net.
