Joe Ryan Osborne of Kannapolis was taken into custody by the Winston-Salem Police Department after he did a donut with his race car in the pit area in the middle of a crowd of crew members and spectators.

A crew member on a competing team was said by witnesses to have been flung in the air after being struck by the car as it spun around.
