For the second consecutive day, debris from an on-track incident at Daytona International Speedway ended up on the grandstand side of the protective fencing.
During Thursday’s final NASCAR Truck Series practice session, a window panel came dislodged from a truck, drifted into the air and nearly struck the NASCAR official in the flagstand before falling over the fence and into the grandstand area.
No one was injured and there did not appear to be any fans in the area where the panel landed.
On Wednesday, a seven-car wreck sent Parker Kligerman’s Toyota into the frontstretch fencing, tore open two small holes and damaged the energy-absorbing SAFER barrier.
That practice session was cut short while repairs were made to the fence and barriers.
The following races will be shown: Sunday’s Daytona 500; April 12 race at Darlington, S.C.; May 4 race at Talladega, Ala.; May 10 race at Kansas; June 15 race at Michigan; July 5 race at Daytona; Aug. 23 race at Bristol, Tenn.; and the Nov. 16 season finale at Homestead, Fla.
Admission to each race viewing party is $10 and free for NASCAR Hall of Fame members. Two large side screens in the theater will feature direct-from-track, commercial free in-car feeds of two drivers, giving fans a behind-the-wheel view of the race.
