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.
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.
