Fans wander around the track before the Coca-Cola 600. The ropes that are part of the FOX camera system hang above the track and grandstands on the right. The area where fans were injured is where they cross over the grandstands straight ahead.
Ten fans were injured last night at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Three were taken to hospitals and later released. They were hurt after a thick nylon rope that was part of an overhead camera system fell over the grandstands.
