A cash prize of $1 million awaits the winner of the 30th Nascar All Star Race this Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Philippine broadcast of this annual spectacle, fueled by Seaoil Philippines, airs Sunday at 8 a.m. on Fox Sports Philippines.
Racers from eight countries are expected to see action in the inaugural staging here of the Asian V8 Championship set April 5 at Clark International Speedway.
Charlotte Motor Speedway said 10 fans were injured Sunday at the Coca-Cola 600 and three were taken to the hospital after a nylon rope supporting a FOX Sports overhead television camera fell from the grandstands and landed on the track surface.
They raced 1-2-3 in line, trading the lead a whopping 15 times over the final, frantic 75 laps. All three drivers had a last-lap plan in mind when they zipped past the white flag, and it was Takuma Sato who acted first with a bold move for the win.
At least 33 NASCAR fans were injured when a car flew into the fence at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, hurling a tire and large pieces of debris into the stands.
The accident happened on the last lap of the second-tier Nationwide Series race on the eve of Sunday’s Sprint Cup season-opening Daytona 500, which officials said would go on as scheduled.
