NASCAR blocks eyewitness video of Daytona crash, but YouTube reverses the takedown

934865

A NASCAR race at the Daytona International Speedway today was disrupted by a harrowing crash that sent debris flying into the stands and left some fans injured. As CNN reports, shredded debris flew into the racetrack barrier, with some reaching 20 feet up to the second level of the track’s stands. At least one fan who witnessed the event caught it on camera and promptly uploaded it to YouTube — but the video was blocked by NASCAR on copyright grounds just minutes after it went live. (Update: YouTube has restored the original video, which you can watch below.)
