A look at NASCAR race track safety after Sunday crash and residents are fighting new development

Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope your Monday went well and here's a look at some of the stories we're working on for tonight.

Race track safety

If you're like me and you had to turn in last night before the NASCAR race ended, you may have missed a horrific crash that drive Austin Dillon miraculously walked away from. But five fans were hurt by flying debris and tonight we're talking to the folks at the Talladega Superspeedway about how they're beefing up protections for you if you're heading to the fall race.

Residents fight new development

And a lot of folks in Cahaba Heights are turning out for a meeting tonight to fight the construction of a proposed new apartment complex in their area. John Huddleston (@Fox6John) is at the meeting live-tweeting and he'll be live with whether this campaign looks like it will succeed tonight all new on FOX6 News at 10.

Those stories and more beginning at 9 on FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
