I heard they were throwing rocks at the driver like it's his fault a bunch of idiots where standing in an unprotected spot watching trucks on dirt going over jumps at over 100 mph. Oh yeh, I forgot...In the dark!

They were supposed to be at least 50 feet away from the track but were as close as 5 feet from it. It's too bad.

I have never understood how or why people put themselves in the absolutely worst spots to watch a race. A prime example is people watching a Rally race lining the road along the OUTSIDE of a turn at the EXIT!.

I'm sorry to say it but anyone that stands within 50 feet of a jump landing zone is a moron. Too bad eight people had to die because of that stupidity.
