How many spectators have been killed at stock car races when a car, tire, etc gets sent up into the stands during a crash?
I recall a very bad crash at a car race back in the late '60s or early '70s that killed many; my recollection is that the number of fatalities exceeded 70. It was a long time ago, and I am not able to find the specific incident by Googling it.
I remember seeing a picture of it on the cover of Life magazine.

You may be speaking of the crash at LeMans that killed almost 100 people.
It was horrible.
I believe it is why Mercedes quit auto racing.
