1 Dead, 9 Injured In NASCAR Post-Race Lightning Strike
Tragedy at the track: A NASCAR fan is dead after a massive storm cut short Sunday’s Sprint Cup race in the mountains of central Pennsylvania.

When the storm blew through, Pocono Raceway officials warned fans to seek shelter under the more-than half-mile long grandstand. But many decided to head to their cars instead, across acres of flat, open parking lot.

That man describing the lightning strike near about a dozen people.

Pocono President Brandon Igdalsky announcing the death. Nine others hurt, one still in critical condition.
