Large chucks of tire and car parts are seen hurling towards spectators and are circled in the screen shot above.

Slow/freeze frame the video below at :33-:34 into the video and you'll see the projectile parts that caused so many injuries.

Nascar is going to have to find a way to reinforce the catch fencing and perhaps raise it so debris is not able to fly into the stands like it did in this accident.

Reba McEntire and Rodney Atkins are leading NASCAR fans in prayer after a terrible accident at the end of  the Saturday race at Daytona.

Over two dozen fans were injured. One adult is in surgery with a life-threatening head injury, while a 14-year-old is in critical condition.

ESPN reports that fourteen of the 28 injured fans were treated on site, while the others were taken to local hospitals.

A multi-car accident during the Nationwide Series race ended with Kyle Larson’s car flying from the pavement, into the catch fence that separates the track from the fans.

Video shows the chain fence mangled after the accident. Larson walked away without injury, but at least one of his tires flew into the crowd.

“Praying for the 17 fans injured at the Daytona Nationwide race today,” McEntire said on Twitter shortly after the accident. Twelve cars were involved.

Tony Stewart ended up winning the race, but his mood was somber after he exited his car.
