It just looks weird.

Camry looks even more out of place than before.

I've thought for years they need a double catch fence at Daytona and Talladega. The one like they have now and a second one about 5 to 10 feet outside of that one.

I don't think the engine went farther than the fence. In the replay though you could see one of the front tires go flying into the stands.

Never been to a race. Are you allowed to stand next to the fence during the race? That was crazy. Hope everybody is ok.

No they have people in the area to keep people away from the fence.
There were injuries according to Mike Helton that are either being treated there or at a local hospital.

They just said on speed channel a wheel and suspension parts did go into the stands and it looked like they had been treating 4 people for injuries.

No but normally its a walkway and security gards stand there. This is not just a fence it usualy is reinforced with wire rope. I was in the pit stands at a dirt track once and almost got hit with a tire that broke off the front of a DIRT car. Scared the S out of me.

Speed channel is now reporting 4 or 5 people were taken from the stands on stretchers. No report of their injuries.
