Because of the number of races it has hosted, and the speeds produced by the track, Michigan International Speedway, location of this week’s LifeLock 400, has been the site of driver and fan deaths and many violent on-track collisions.

Worst Michigan wrecks

Another tragic day for motorsports. As a result of the crash, Baldwin spent 11 years in a coma and died in 1997.
