The identity of the fan killed by a lightning strike has been released after the family was notified.
President and CEO of Pocono Raceway, Brandon Igdalasky, provided an update as he expressed condolences to the family of 41-year-old Brian Zimmerman, who was killed by a lightning strike at Sunday's rain-shortened NASCAR race.
Igdalasky called Zimmerman a "long time member of our Pocono Raceway family".
Another fan stuck by lightning has been upgraded from critical to stable condition, according to Igdalasky. The badly injured fan was among nine people who were hurt as storms swept over the track.
