NASCAR Settles Lawsuit With Fan Injured At 2013 Xfinity Race

NASCAR has recently settled a lawsuit with Alan Davis—a fan who suffered an injury at a 2013 race. Davis filed the suit in 2015 against both NASACR and Daytona International Speedway. By coming to the settlement, NASCAR avoided having their crash and fencing reports made public.

According to the compliant, Davis was sitting at the top of the grandstand during the Xfinity Race when a wreck occurred on the track. The crash sent heavy debris flying into the stands, injuring over 30 people. Davis suffered a blow to the head which resulted in a catastrophic brain injury. According to his attorney, Davis’ life was changed by the injury and he will require medical care for the remainder of his life. NASCAR has refused to release the crash report and the exact terms of the settlement have not been made public. “Safety is first and foremost,” NASCAR’s vice president says. “Our goal is getting that right and making sure our fans can enjoy the most safe and entertaining environment possible.” Davis and his attorney hope that this lawsuit will be a catalyst for change.
