THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
PRAYER TIME RACE FANS. With the horrific crash that ended the Nationwide Series race today at Daytona it is time the racing community comes together. Take some time and turn your thoughts and prayers to all fans that were injured.
If you missed the race here is what happened. On the last lap and dash to the finish line a multi car crash caused Kyle Larson to go airborne into the catch fence. As he went into the fence the front end of his car went through it and injured some fans. One of the tires flew into the upper deck. As this is still fairly new no official word has come from NASCAR or anyone else as to how many or what condition There are reports that at least 15 fans have been taken to the hospital.
Michael Annett also had a wreck a few laps earlier. It was similar to the type of crash that Dale Earnhardt Sr had when he lost his life twelve years ago. Annett was air lifted to Halifax Medical Center. It has been reported that he is awake and alert. Tests are being run on him to ensure he is alright. Prayers to him as well.
Here at radiospeedtalk.com, Speed Talk, The Balance, and Indy Pro Sports we all pray for the fans and their families.
