>>. Last year, Joey Coulter crashed his Camping World Truck Series vehicle about 300 yards from the sight of Saturday’s accident scene<<
Wonder if they cited the driver for being in sight of the site?
I caught a splash of hot oil at MIS once.
Thought for sure Danica Patrick had wrecked another car....
I just watched it on Speed. It’s amazing more people don’t get hurt from debris. Hot fluids would suck too. Did it burn you bad?
Most spectacular Daytona crash of them all.
How did Danical do? I know she didn’t win.
This was the Nationwide race. The big boys and Danica race tomorrow .
I was working security along the fence when there was a crash at the entrance to turn one. It was more of a mist of hot oil. It didn’t burn bad or anything. About like a bacon grease spatter.
Jeff Burton ended up against the wall right at my feet and I could see right down in the car as he was trying to find a gear to take off.
Amazing/scary video of the crash from the stands near where the wheel landed:

HOLEY MOLEY! That was a wreck! I am amazed he survived!
Thanks, I haven’t really kept up with Nascar since the 60’s.
I remember those big Pontiacs, Ford, Chevys and Plymouths with the 427 and 426 engines. It was a different world back then.
Fireball Roberts, Fred Lorenzen, etc.
Car crapped out after 32 laps.
Bodine got hurt fairly serious in that crash but he survived.
Another bad one was Mike Harmon at Bristol a few years ago. He walked right out the front of the car where the steering wheel was.
Speed channel is providing coverage and NASCAR president will be holding a press conference.
and how long before the left associates the crash with conservatives? aka, Republicans fault, maybe for not passing, or passing the Sequesta?
1955 Le Mans crash... 80 dead, 120 injured.
Danica raced today and was running near the front until her motor overheated and blew up. She failed to finish ... once again.
