No fatalities were reported in the accident about the last lap of the Nationwide Series race. The crash began because field closed in around the finish line, and rookie Kyle Larson's car came upon the wreck and went airborne into the fence that separates the track from the seats. Large chunks of Larson's car landed within the grandstands, and one of his tires did actually fly in the fence and land midway up the lower section.

Speedway President Joie Chitwood said 14 fans were treated on-site , and 14 others were delivered to hospitals. Chi
