        The wind caused some damage at the Kentucky Speedway before the start of tonight's NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

        Winds as high 60 miles per hour blew a tent over crushing some cars.

        The track warned fans the wind was coming and many voluntarily evacuated the stands, tents, and camping area.
        
        Driver Danica Patrick praised the fans for sticking around through the wind storm.

        No injuries were reported at the track and the race started on time.
