+ - NASCAR Tries To Squelch Video of Spectators Injured by Crash 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Dozens of fans attending a NASCAR race at Daytona Speedway were injured when a crash during the last lap triggered a chain reaction, culminating in the front section of Kyle Larson's car ricocheting into the fence in front of the stands (Larson escaped injury). While the footage accompanying the Fox News story is dramatic enough, an even more riveting clip showing the chaotic scene in the stands from up close was posted on YouTube, but was taken down after NASCAR claimed it violated their copyright . YouTube has since restored the fan's video. A NASCAR spokesman has issued a clarification, saying that the takedown request was done out of respect for those injured. The race was an opening act for the main event, the Daytona 500, which officials say will proceed as scheduled. "With the fence being prepared tonight to our safety protocols, we expect to go racing tomorrow with no changes," Speedway President Joie Chitwood told CNN."

  • Notice how the fans cheer when they see the crash. They have been waiting all day for it. The horrific reality of a car crash quickly becomes a harsh truth for gore seeking spectators who become part of the crash. Such is the nature of the beast. There is inherent danger in racing sports. The irony is bitter-sweet.

Computer Science is merely the post-Turing decline in formal systems theory.
