IndyCar tried the turbine car and looked how that ended up.

IIRC, USAC regulated them out of competition......the piston powered engines couldn't match 'em so they had to go.

10:30 p.m. ET — Video shows track worker running up the track to help driver of the jet-dryer truck just before the fire broke out. That guy deserves a bonus!

10:24 p.m. ET — NASCAR officials report that Dave Blaney does not want to get out of his car. He is asking, however, for someone to bring him water. Could the Daytona 500 trophy be far behind?

I was at the Las Vegas Indycar Race. This feels like that did. I hope NASCAR is keeping the crowd better informed about events than Indycar did.

They just wasn’t ready for something like this. Using bondo
to repair a race track wont work. Its brittle. Watch close someone is going to slip and bust their a$$.

They could have started a new class of vehicle competition.. no bump drafting tho.. sure make it easier to get your pull-out windshields off

Hopefully someone will get on the ball and have on hand from now on at any major race an airport type fire truck, something designed to handle jet fuel fires.

Foam might have made a bigger mess but it would have knocked the fire on its bum. I think the track is toasted, pun intended.

Re: Bondo.

They’ve done it before... only needs to hold for an hour or less. No sweat.

They’re in the spin and rinse cycle.. maybe the newer surface holds up better to a fire like this.. or they were using cheap jet fuel..

I don’t like Montoya but you can’t blame him. He pitted, they looked under the car, and sent him out. He was just a passenger after it broke.

I don’t think blame is an issue here. Freak accident. One thing for sure is that jet-dry driver will be replacing his dirty shorts for a fire suit.

Memo to self:

If you see an ad on Ebay for a slightly used official NASCAR Chevy Dually Pickup Truck and the price is too good to be true, don't bid on it.

(Even if the dashboard is autographed by Danica Patrick.)
