My boyfriend was at this event last night. He called me and seemed very shaken. Apparently he was only 100 feet away from the people who got killed.

Look, it's like going down to Baja in the old days, with spectators trying to touch the race vehicles as they flew by at 70 mph...Many of the spectators were drinking etc., standing right along side the course as they flew by...

That's close to suicide in my opinion...

All the sponsors would have to do is force the spectators to stay back from the course fifty feet or so. Could be done with cones...Anyone violating this common sense rule the race is stopped immediately. Do this and the spectators will police themselves.
