    The bad weather ended the race early but shortly after they announced it was over and that there was severe lightning in the area a bolt of lightning struck near Gate 11 that struck and killed a man.

    Another man was injured from another lightning strike by Gate 3.

    Several NASCAR racers mentioned on twitter that lightning was pretty heavy and that the thunder was instant. There were at least a couple of lightning strikes in the infield as well.
