Thanks, I think. LOL

Was on the phone with a friend who called to ask about the race. Was explaining how Flash pulled up to Hamlin just a couple of laps before and boom, he blowed up real good.

Lap 160 — RED FLAG: The jet dryer and track are still in flames.

Lap 160 — Juan Montoya’s car has hit one of the jet dryers, and the truck is engulfed in flames in Turn 3.

Lap 159 — The leaders are on pit road. Several take two tires only.

Very strange! They’d have to wash the fuel off the track, then dry it.

Hay Juan, It’s against the rules to put a jet engine
in your car. But that is a novel way of doing it.

Yeah, they were pretty slow in getting the foam truck out there.

Until then, the regular fire extinguishers just weren't doin’ it.

There have been some strange crashes over the years.. but a jet dryer? That’s taking it to a whole new level..

Nascar had better figure out how this one went down and quick.. bizarre or wild is too kind,, we could have had a couple flambeed track workers,, as safe as Nascar has tried to make itself ,, this shows that somebody wasn’t communicating too well.

IndyCar tried the turbine car and looked how that ended up.. Juan tried a retrofit and that’s all it wrote.

They say he was just along for the ride after his car “broke”. strange scenario..
