William Fulton has dropped his lawsuit against NASCAR and Daytona (Fla.) International stemming from injuries he sustained while watching the Coke Zero 400 Sprint Cup Series race from the sixth row of the track’s grandstand July 5, 2015.
Paperwork to drop the lawsuit was filed in Florida state court in Volusia County in late September. A confidential out-of-court settlement was reached, Fulton’s attorney, David Beers, confirmed to ESPN
In his lawsuit, Fulton claimed that he was hit in the head and shoulder by debris while shielding his wife when the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet driven by Austin Dillon got airborne and went into the catchfence, scattering debris into the grandstand. The driver was not injured. According to the suit, Fulton has not fully recovered from his injuries.
