Fans' conditions upgraded after scary crash at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR, which has spent the past decade making its cars safer, was facing questions about the security of its fans after a vicious Nationwide crash Saturday injured 28 people, including two critically. The fans have been upgraded from critical condition, a hospital spokesman said.
Kyle Larson's Chevrolet went airborne into the Daytona International Speedway frontstretch catchfence after being collected in a last-lap crash, triggered when leader Regan Smith tried to block a move by Brad Keselowski off Turn 4 in the Drive4COPD 300. Both a tire and Larson's engine reached the grandstand side of the catchfence in the 12-car wreck.
Tony Stewart, who tied Dale Earnhardt with a record seventh Nationwide win at the 2.5-mile track, managed to avoid the pileup after heading down to the bottom of the apron, crossing the finish line under a caution flag.
A YouTube video from the grandstands showed the aftermath of the crash. "Oh my God," someone screams as a battered tire sits on chairs in the middle of the row, and fans began gesturing wildly for help from emergency workers as a man removed his shirt to tend to an injured fan.
