The 2012 Daytona 500 has been red flagged after Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into a jet dryer that was on the track resulting in a fiery crash and a large inferno as jet fuel spilled out onto the track.
As you can see something appeared to break on Montoya's car right before he spins into the dryer. The question now is what kind of damage was done to the racing surface in turn 3 after the fire burned for several minutes on the asphalt.
With 40 laps remaining this event could actually end the race due to the damage to the new racing surface. Currently Dave Blaney is leading the race and is followed by Landon Cassill, Tony Raines, David Gilleland and Matt Kenseth. To make matters worse rain is once again approaching the area.
