Watch moment 30 people injured in Nascar crash:

After one fan is left critically injured by a Nascar crash at the Daytona Speedway, track officials insist the fence protecting spectators meets the required safety regulations.

Fans feeling unsafe after the crash at Daytona International Speedway have been told they can change seats for Nascar's biggest race.

Track President Joie Chitwood said that workers had successfully repaired a section of fence - 54 feet (16.5m) wide and 22 feet (6.7m) high - that was shredded Saturday when Kyle Larson's car went airborne on the final lap of a second-tier race and crashed through the barrier that separates cars from fans. Large pieces of debris, including a tire, sprayed into the upper and lower section of the stands.

The crash injured more than 30 people, raising more questions about fan safety at race tracks.

Halifax Health spokesman Byron Cogdell said seven people with crash-related injuries in Daytona Beach remained hospitalised Sunday in stable condition. The six people brought to Halifax hospital in Port Orange with crash-related injuries had all been discharged by Sunday morning, Cogdell said.
