The fan who climbed the catchfence at Charlotte Motor Speedway during Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 was ejected after a man working security for the race pulled him down from the fence.

The fence-climber was captured on a video that was posted to Facebook on Sunday night. He didn’t get as far as previous fence-climbers (thankfully) and then was hilariously dragged down from the fence by a security guard.

We have no idea how security let him get up on the fence in the first place, but they were at least aggressive in getting him down. A spokesperson for Charlotte Motor Speedway told Yahoo Sports the fan was immediately escorted out of the track and told not to return.

There is no arrest record on the Concord, North Carolina, Police Department site. 

The Charlotte fence-climber comes approximately a year after a fan climbed the catchfence at Dover. A caution was not thrown for that fan’s climb even though the Dover fan was sitting at the top of the catchfence over the track. 

The modern fence-climbing phenomenon started at Richmond in 2014. It needs to stop before someone hurts themselves.
