Safe and Langhorne are two words usually not found in the same sentence unless the word "not" also appears, however from what I remember and from pictures and old film I've seen, there was a run off area between the track and the inside spectators, with a pretty deep drop off that I guess was there to kind of catch any cars that spun/flipped down to the inside.  The picture above doesn't really make that apparent.

The picture below is from before I started going, but you can kind of see what I mean.

Speaking of "safety", check out all the spectators on the gray billboard or whatever it is in the upper right of the photo.
