At least 33 spectators were injured after a crash during the final lap of DRIVE 4 COPD 300 race on Saturday, February 23, 2013. The crash sent large chunks of debris, including a tire into the grandstands following a racing car’s impact with the fence. DRIVE 4 COPD 300 is a warm up for NASCAR’s biggest race – the Daytona 500 which opens on Sunday.
A fan posted this video of the crash filmed from the area affected by the flying debris. While most injuries were minor, one head injury was reportedly critical. Makes you wonder if that’s the guy who caught the tire in the head.
