CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Charlotte Motor Speedway says 10 fans were injured Sunday at the Coca-Cola 600 and three were taken to the hospital when a nylon rope supporting a FOX Sports overhead television camera fell from the grandstands on to the track surface.
Seven people were treated with "minor cuts and scrapes" on site and released, according to a release from CMS.
The incident occurred on lap 121 of the 400-lap NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
The race was delayed for 27 minutes while crews repaired damage to their cars.
Kyle Busch, going for a sweep at Charlotte Motor Speedway after winning the Nationwide and Truck series races, was leading when he incurred damage to the right front wheel well of his No. 18 Toyota.
Marcos Ambrose and Mark Martin also reported damage.
