A last-lap accident sent rookie Kyle Larson's car sailing into the fence that separates the track from fans at the NASCAR Nationwide Series race Saturday at Daytona, injuring 30 spectators. Large chunks of Larson's car landed in the grandstands. The car itself had its entire front end sheared off, with a piece of burning engine wedged through a gaping hole in the fence.

Here are some photos of the crash and aftermath.
