"Debris and smoke and dust and people screaming and people running trying to get away,” Huckaby said.
Cell phone video shows the frightening first seconds after the smoke cleared, where fans are heard screaming for paramedics.
60-year-old Huckaby was among them, after he saw his brother Eddie lying motionless on his side.
"I looked at his leg and his pants were torn all the way down the side and he was bleeding pretty bad,” Huckaby said.
Huckaby says a piece of fence tore through his younger brother's leg.
“I grabbed my belt off and some people helped me get that around his leg and tie it off in case he'd cut an artery or something,” Huckaby said.
53-year-old Eddie Huckaby was taken to the hospital and is expected to be released after a few days. He was one of 33 fans that were injured.
Sunday at the Batter's Box Sports Bar and Grille in downtown Nashville, fans said, thankfully no one was killed.
"Luckily about that yeah,” Izak Levi said. “God, thanks and I wish a speedy recovery for everybody out there."
Those Midstate fans said the crash won't keep them from going to the track any chance they get.
"You know if you look at the record, look at the past, it's safe,” Dano Walker said. “They do all they can do.
Not even Huckaby who lived through the traumatic experience will let it keep him from the sport he loves.
The day after the crash at the Nationwide, he was in the bleachers at the Daytona 500.
"If a plane crashes is everybody going to stop flying on planes,” Huckaby said. “If you get hit by a baseball or a foul ball at a ball game or a hockey puck at the Predators? It's a freaky thing to have happen. I don't know of any way you can prevent it."
