Daytona 500 runs on schedule, day after fans hurt
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Fans feeling unsafe after the terrifying crash at Daytona International Speedway a day earlier were able to change seats for NASCAR's biggest race on Sunday.
Workers successfully repaired a section of fence — 54 feet wide and 22 feet high — that was shredded Saturday when Kyle Larson's car went airborne on the final lap of a second-tier race and crashed through the barrier that separates cars from fans. Large pieces of debris, including a tire, sprayed into the upper and lower section of the stands.
The crash the day before the Daytona 500 injured more than 30 people, raising more questions about fan safety at race tracks.
