Scary Crash During Sprint Car Feature Yesterday At Toledo Speedway

Weather forced Toledo Speedway to postpone Saturday's running of the Rollie Beale Classic to Sunday which featured the USAC Silver Crown Series and non-wing sprint car action. Things got ugly early during the 50-lap sprint car feature race after a car driven by Dameron Taylor smacked the wall coming off turn four and came to rest in the middle of the front stretch. The yellow flag was thrown by the flag man. A full 12 seconds after that car came to rest, a pack of cars still racing came barreling off turn four with at least one of those cars slamming into the stopped car on the front stretch. Another car at the back of that pack driven by Bobby Santos was launched into the air and barrel rolled down the front stretch. Scott Schultz, Toledo Speedway GM, says the "yellow flag came out, the lights came on," and an Auto Value official in the tower did deliver the message via radio to the drivers. However, one of the drivers who was involved in the incident, Tony Main, stated via his Facebook page that he "didn't see lights or hear anything."

A couple different perspectives below.
