A horrible crash ends the Drive4COPD 250, leaves spectators injured

In one of the craziest and scariest crashes that I have ever seen with a NASCAR race, a wild one ended the NASCAR Nationwide Series opener today, the Drive4COPD 250 at Daytona International Speedway. A massive crash occured at the exit of turn four when the leader, Regan Smith, was turned and crashed into the wall head first. Multiple cars were involved, with none more notable than that of the 32 of rookie Kyle Larson, whose car went into the catch fence and it resulted in the entire front-end of his car being torn off and hurled towards spectators, with the car's engine ended up stuck in the fence. Amazingly, Larson was okay, as were the other drivers involved. There are differing reports on the amount of spectators that were injured, with Jayski reporting that 11 spectators are being treated at a local hospital with two being critically injured, four on trauma alert and five being treated as non-trauma cases

Continue reading for some video as well as pictures of the horrific wreck.

The crash happened right in front of this spectator. 

Keep the injured spectators in your prayers.
