Been watching racing for a lot of years and never witnessed what happened at Daytons tonight. While under caution, JPM is coming around at around 100 mph to join up with the field . A jet dryer is on the track blowing off debri. Something breaks on JPM's car and he veers up the banking and collides with the jet blower. It immediatley goes up in a fireball with 200 gallons of jet fuel running down the banking like a river. This ignites, causing a river of flame. Caused a 2 hour delay after they finally got it put out with all the clean up. They thought they might have top call the race, thinking the inferno had melted the track, but it turned out to be ok and they got to finish the race.JPM's car looked like it had been fire bombed, and the back of the jet dryer was a big wad of melted metal.. Crazy shit.

JPM's crew chief told him to hit the pace car, not the jet dryer car and it got lost in translation....lol shades of Days of Thunder

I forced myself to watch the entire thing, and I'm glad I did. History, even if it was not good history.



The surface appeared to be okay so I hope it doesn't screw with the 200.

Something broke on the car, he was complaining of a wicked vibration right before it happened.

NASCAR got an unexpected surprise after the race. They found out that Monday night racing is ready for primetime . Most watched Daytona 500 ever.
