VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Three spectators were injured Sunday evening when a sprint car flipped off the dirt track and into the crowd at Volusia Speedway Park, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.

The car, driven by Dale Blaney, hit a 6-foot high embankment shortly before 9:30 p.m. while approaching turn one during a DIRTcar Nationals World of Outlaws event, deputies said.

Race fans were seen scattering as the car barreled through a fence, hitting three people.

“When those (cars) get flipping and go over the fence, it’s to each your own, run,” said Bruce Weber.

“[It] looked like they had one car bump into another car,” a fan said. “One went up and over the fence, another went up onto the embankment and one went down the side rail.”
