Steve Pfeifer (#17), driving relief for owner-driver Roger Hamby, lost control heading onto pit road, slamming into a dirt embankment near the pit entrance. The impact catapulted his car over the embankment, mowing down several spectators positioned inside the pit wall. A photographer, Ray Cook, suffered leg and ankle injuries, while Pfeifer himself suffered only minor injuries. Others hit by the car, including an unidentified security guard, were able to walk away with minor scrapes and bruises.
