    NASCAR Nationwide Race

    Crash at the finish sheared off the whole front end of Kyle Larson's car off and landed the engine and and tires in the grandstand - through the catch fence. Kyle's ok, but still no replay or word on if anyone was injured........

    Crazy ending. Told my wife Smoke was still going to win right before it went down. Wasn't how I imagined it happening. rewatching the ending on dvr now to see how it went down since ESPN isn't.

    HOLY CRAP, reminds me of when petty when cart wheeling down the front stretch in the 80'.


    I'm not trying to be difficult, it comes naturally....

    no it doesn't :( Showed a pic of about 20 ambulances lined up on the backside of the entrance. The one replay they played showed Kyle's other front tire flying clear over the catch fence about 20 rows in. That's about 60lbs of flying coming at you probably over 100mph.

    Re: NASCAR Nationwide Race

    Hate to sound mean only silver lining maybe nascar's (I know its a nationwide race) waining popularity, meaning the stands might not have been as packed as in past years.... Still not good....

    Re: NASCAR Nationwide Race

    Looks like it might have actually been the fence's post that ripped the front end off according to your picture.

    Not a good way for nascar to make the news...

    I was hoping the same thing, you can see from that pic of his car in the fence that all the seats weren't full so hopefully that meant less injuries and easier for people to get out of the way if they had time.

    Des Moines native Michael Annett was taken to the hospital after the earlier crash that set up the green/white checker. Sounds like he is awake and alert.
