Watch the Camera Cable Break at NASCAR Coke 600
A new video just went up on YouTube of the snapped camera cable that caused those injuries at the NASCAR Coke 600 over the weekend. Jeremy Lowder was sitting directly under the cable while the other end of it was lying on the track. You can see the cable shaking and whipping around as the cars drive by. It was so close to the spectators' heads that a few people reached up and grabbed it.
Ten fans were injured in Sunday's incident at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, including three who were transported to an area hospital for further evaluation before being released and seven who were treated for minor cuts and scrapes on-site.
The race was stopped for 30 minutes after the cable broke. Kevin Harvick pulled away from Kasey Kahne on the restart Sunday with 11 laps left to win the Coca-Cola 600 for the second time in three seasons.
