On lap 121 of Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, a cable supporting an overhead camera snapped and fell across the track. Ten fans were injured, three hospitalized, and the race was red-flagged for nearly a half-hour after several cars were damaged. It could have been much worse, and the eyewitness video is…
The cable, which belonged to FOX, snapped and struck several cars at lap 124 of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch was in the lead, and presumably driving upwards of 200 miles an hour when the cable snapped and struck his car and others', causing the race to be red-flagged.
In all fairness, the car Chad Knaus was watching did appear to, you know, blow up at tonight's Coca-Cola 600. Johnson finished 28th. Kevin Harvick won, after Dale Earnhardt, Jr., who was leading, ran out of gas on the last lap. I'm told it's quite expensive these days.
Linda Ward and Greg Waters met a year ago when fate pitched their tents in close proximity to one another at Charlotte Motor Speedway's Peninsula Campground. Yesterday, the gushing jail nurse and truck driver became one at their "Royal Race Wedding."
