Nascar Fans To Sue Daytona 500 Organizers

Some NASCAR fans are reportedly planning to sue the organizers of the Daytona 500 following a car crash that caused them injuries. Several spectators were rushed to the hospital after a race car flew into the grandstand fence during the weekend event.

Attorney Matt Morgan, who was hired by three fans, told channel WFTV-9 in Orlando, Florida that a lawsuit will be filed against the Daytona International Speedway.

“No fan assumes the risk of a car flying in the stands and suffering a significant injury,” the lawyer said in the interview, according to The Epoch Times.

“What we have to investigate—what was done and was there a safer fence that wasn’t put in place because of monetary considerations?” Morgan reportedly asked.

The lawyer said one of his clients sustained a head injury and another had a broken leg. He said they’re bringing their case to court in spite of NASCAR reportedly sending a representative to visit the victims at the hospital.

Organizers told the Daytona Beach News Journal that they have not yet received any representation letters, the report said.
