Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into a jet dryer in 2012 Daytona 500 (the Monday night special)? Well, we have officially topped that, if not come very close, with tonight's Sprint Unlimited. Tonight, the pace car caught on fire. Let's go to the videotape because it is too damn good to keep from the people.
And for those who love the GiF format, hit up The Big Lead here.
What was the cause of the fire? According to the great Mike Joy, it was "a battery pack in the trunk for the external caution lights." Fortunately, they were able to go to a backup pace care (for the first time ever?), but it was still ridiculous and awesome.
