Whenever Daytona 500 time rolls around I remember this one.
Here is a slide show video of a fiery crash in the Daytona 500 consolation race from 1984. I was standing on pit road when this happened. If you have been to Daytona, it's a really big place. From where I was on pit road it was several hundred yards maybe even a 1/4 mile away. A few seconds after the crash I just felt a huge heat wave blow over me. To make it even worse my dad was in this race. He was way behind this accident. Look at :52 in to the video and you'll see car #50 pass under the accident. He was 50 years old at the time and trying to be NASCARS oldest rookie.
This was scary stuff and quite amazing that both drivers survived, although with some serious injuries.
