10 Race Fans Hurt at Race When TV Cable Falls

Posted: Updated:


Charlotte Motor Speedway says 10 fans were injured when a nylon rope supporting a Fox Sports overhead television camera fell from the grandstands and landed on the track surface.

A track spokeswoman says the three people taken to the hospital had "minor injuries that are not life threatening."

The incident occurred on lap 121 of the 400-lap NASCAR Sprint Cup race and caused a 27-minute delay while crews repaired damage to their cars.

Kyle Busch, Marco Ambrose and Mark Martin reported damage to their vehicles.
