A late-race one-lap addition to a warning throughout final weekend’s NASCAR Cup Sequence race on the Charlotte Roval appeared pretty inexplicable to the followers watching from house; there was no particles on monitor, nor was there a crash. Because it seems, the warning got here out as a result of one silly — courageous, however extremely silly — fan jumped over the fence and ran out onto the monitor. Oh, the issues we’ll do once we’re below the affect of some beers and a few quick race vehicles.
The additional lap of warning was so complicated that almost all followers had no thought what occurred till NASCAR Xfinity driver Noah Gragson tweeted, “Anybody simply see that fan hop the fence and run on monitor in flip 7?”
Abruptly, that thriller warning made sense, however the precise proof of this particular person’s shenanigans didn’t make it round Twitter till at present — in truth, till one Twitter consumer truly posted the video, it was questionable whether or not a fan was there in any respect.
You possibly can watch the Twitter clip — pulled from a now-deleted TikTok video — beneath.
Because the video exhibits, an American flag tank-bedecked man climbed over the chainlink fencing that separates a viewing space from the monitor. He hopped onto a concrete barrier, then took off working onto the monitor floor.
A security crew arrived on the scene nearly instantly, however earlier than anybody may get out of the truck, the rogue fan high-tailed it again to chainlink fence. He pulled of some gymnastic-style strikes to leap over it which may have nearly been spectacular if he hadn’t completed his tour with a painful-looking face plant.
The video ends by displaying the cops questioning the individuals within the space, adopted by the track-runner sliding down Charlotte’s banking at the hours of darkness. It’s unclear what sort of punishment he incurred — if he incurred any in any respect — however I believe it’s secure to say that you must keep away from attempting out an analogous maneuver whereas there are, y’know, quick vehicles able to squish you.
