3 Most Memorable Moments from Daytona Weekend

There was a lot of NASCAR action this past weekend in Daytona. From the Daytona 500 to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to the Drive4COPD there was plenty for racing fans to feast their eyes on. This is definitely one racing weekend that will go down in history and it won’t be because of the winners—what winners?

No, what this weekend will be remembered for is rain, fire, and crashes—so many crashes. Here are the top three most memorable moments from the series of races in Daytona this past weekend.

1. Juan Pablo Montoya vs. Jet Dryer

 

It was something never encountered before. Not only did he crash into the jet dryer that was trying to prepare the track, the accident sent flaming balls across the track. It seemed as though this race was doomed to never happen after the 30-hour rain delay they had already encountered. The race was delayed another two hours to clean up the mess, thank goodness they had Tide!

2. Danica Patrick, crash crash crash!

I am sure Danica Patrick thought her Daytona 500 debut would have been more…well anything but what it was. She couldn’t catch a break, or should I say brake, getting in three accidents in less than a week.

Oh, and did we mention that her second crash was caused by one of her teammates?

She had been through enough, right?

In the end, with all of the repairs that needed to be done to her car she completed the race in 38th place—she did beat five people, that counts for something right?

3. Flying Truck

I’ve hear of flying cars—Chiddy Chiddy Bang Bang anyone—but never a flying truck. I have to give props to Miguel Paludo for walking away from that crash; I would have been a big baby about it. That truck really did get some major air.

Luckily no one was injured in these crashes, but a car or truck accident can be devastating even for professionals.
