Closing argument are underway in a N.C. trial court in the case of a Virginia couple seeking to recover for injuries sustained as the result of the collapse of the pedestrian bridge over U.S. Route 29 at the Lowe's Motor Speedway outside Charlotte, according to this report. Lowe's Motor Speedway is owned by Speedway Motor Sports, the parent company of the Bristol Motor Speedway, where this week's NASCAR events will occur. 160,000 fans will attend this weekend's Winston Cup race, and the traffic controllers hope to clear the roads within 3 hours after the event, as stated here.
