Sounds like Mel is a cocksucker.
That track is damned near on the edge of no where. It's perfectly plausible that it was a stray round from a hunter or shooter. I know plenty of folks who hunt and shoot in those areas.
Must have been windy.
"I don't believe this was an accident for a minute. Someone fired toward that race track."
Yes... because I regularly practice my 2+ mile arch shots for such an occasion...
Someone probably missed their target in Afghanistan.
Must of missed the satelite, it made 6 orbits before reentering the atmosphere.
More nascar fans need to be shot.

She should have bought a lotto ticket on her way to the hospital.
how do they know it was 2 miles away? and what is a "reveler"??
Whoa whoa whoa whoa now... this is only a .50 cal round we're talking about, not a 10mm.
they were just rying to shoot down the goodyear blimp... from a safe distance.
Serves them right for going to a NASCAR event
or they were shot from the goodyear blimp! Conspiracy theory! To arfcom!
I was going to say "She probably wouldn't have been hit if she had stayed in the kitchen" but being that it was in a motor home she very well may have been in the kitchen.
was probably actually a black powder round that happened to be .50" in diameter, but was written up to sound like the big scary 50 cal rounds
I don't know why this makes me laugh
"The bullet came to rest in a wall near the door. There were children and propane tanks outside. "
Children.... and propane tanks!
I think they were commenting on what could have made the gun randomly fire itself... being within 2 miles of these will make any gun cause trouble, which is why we probably shouldn't let the public have them.
The solution is easy. Ban NASCAR. That way, people won't congregate together at the event, thus .50 caliber bullets can rain down in TX freely. It's obvious that the woman was in the way of the bullet's path.
i thought it meant that luckly the bullet stopped where it did, or it could have hit the kids or propabe tanks.
sounds like the beginning of Enemies Foreign and Domestic
Allegedly someone called themselves in as a potential cause. Apparently he was shooting 5 miles away and police have confiscated the gun for forensic testing.
That was awfully nice of him.
That proves that law-abiding gun owners truly are responsible.
Charges wont be pressed on the shooter, but check out this awesome website.
[SIZE=+2]Benbrook man says his bullet may have hit woman at Texas Motor Speedway

[email protected] [/SIZE] Fort Worth police are investigating reports from a 49-year-old Benbrook man who says he may be responsible for the stray bullet that hit an Arlington woman Sunday morning at Texas Motor Speedway.
Kennith Jaramillo contacted Fort Worth police on Monday after hearing that Jill King Moss, 62, was hit in her arm by a .50-caliber bullet that pierced the roof of her RV, authorities said. Ms. Moss was taken to Harris Methodist Hospital and is expected to recover from her injuries.
Given the bullet’s trajectory, Fort Worth police investigators believe the bullet came from a long distance away.
Mr. Jaramillo told police he was target shooting five miles away from Texas Motor Speedway between 10 and 11 a.m, said Lt. Paul Henderson, a Fort Worth police spokesman. Mr. Jaramillo fired five or six rounds at a berm, a mound of dirt, with his .50-caliber Vulcan single shot rifle.
Fort Worth police confiscated his weapon for ballistics tests. If tests confirm the bullet was fired from his weapon, Mr. Jaramillo could be charged with deadly conduct for recklessly firing a weapon, Lt. Henderson said.
Mr. Jaramillo has not been arrested or charged in the incident.
In the fututre someone is going to google Kennith Jaramillo before hiring him and go
If it was a 10mm bullet there would be nothing left of the RV.
