After two delays the Daytona 500 racers finally were able to race Monday night.

With 40 laps left driver Juan Pablo Montoya lost control of his car during a caution and slammed into the back of an emergency jet dryer full of fuel. The crash destroyed Montoya’s car and ignited the fuel that spilled from the truck.

Thankfully no one was severely injured as Montoya got out unharmed. The driver of the jet dryer had to be helped out of his truck. Take a look at the video to see what 200 gallons of jet fuel on fire looks like. Click here to see the video.
