    Austin Dillon's car was catapulted into the catchfence in the Daytona International Speedway trioval during a massive crash at the end of Sunday night's Coke Zero 400 as Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the race.

    One fan was taken to the hospital after it appeared some debris from Dillon's car flew into the grandstands.

    Junior crossed the finish line ahead of a massive pack of cars typical of any restrictor plate race. Denny Hamlin got turned around behind Junior and chaos ensued. Dillon's car got launched from the inside line of the track over two lanes of cars and into the catchfence, where it hit bottom-side first, going from nearly 200 mph to zero in an instant.

    According to Daytona president Joie Chitwood, eight fans declined treatment in the grandstands following the crash. The person taken to the hospital was treated and released from Halifax Health early Monday morning.

    13 fans looked at in stands, 8 declined care, 4 treated here, 1 taken to hospital stable

    Fan treated and released from Halifax Health Medical Center.
