Those in attendance for Bryan Clauson's celebration of life were forced to take cover after a tornado a few miles away during a round of extremely severe thunderstorms.
A tornado struck near a mall just four miles away from Kokomo Speedway, site of the Bryan Clauson tribute, but the track was not impacted. The tribute has since continued.
Tornadoes and extremely severe thunderstorms have rolled through various areas of Indiana throughout the afternoon.
