Video: NASCAR pit lane crash
Surprise, surprise: there’s been another spectacular crash during this weekend’s NASCAR. But this one’s different: it was in the pit lane.
On lap 64 of Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400, Juan Pablo Montoya and Bobby Labonte collected polesitter Mark Martin (doing a not-too-shabby 168 mph) and punted him sideways down the pit lane.
Luckily the car managed to miss the explosives, mechanics and pit girls that normally reside there, as the 53-year-old veteran came to a hefty stop by t-boning a dividing wall - smashing his oil tank like a piñata full of flammable, lubricated treats.
Thankfully nobody was hurt: watch it for yourself below.
