What a surprise.


ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The attorney for three NASCAR fans injured last weekend during a race the day before the Daytona 500 says they are exploring a possible lawsuit, but some experts say they could face tough obstacles in winning damages.
Matt Morgan, the Orlando-based lawyer for the fans, said at a news conference Tuesday than any suit would focus on the safety fence used along the track at Daytona International Speedway. He said he hopes to reach a settlement with NASCAR to avoid a lawsuit.

I wouldn't even go to a race at a larger track if I had to sit that close.

1) It's 10x more dangerous sitting that close
2) All you'd be able to see is a streak go by every few seconds
3) chances are your eardrums would bust

I sat in row 3 at Martinsville once and I had buzzing in my ears for 3 days after.

Its not loud at Daytona for the big boys with the restrictor plates... its really surprising. I would say Charlotte is 10 times louder. You can sit at Daytona with no ear protection and have a normal conversation as the cars go by.

Its a freak accident that happens every so often in racing. Its sad but at least nobody was killed in the accident (fans or drivers)
