Austin Dillon’s crash during the final lap of the Coke Zero 400 not long ago was positively terrifying, yet somehow he managed to walk away from the incident unscathed.
Dillon went airborne and was thrown violently into the Catchfence on the outer part of the track, and several other drivers also bumped and spun out of control.
Now, in true NASCAR form, the organization has compiled the footage captured by the in-car cameras attached to the front and back of Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Aric Almirola, Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (who won the race), showing us what it would be like to witness the collision from a drivers perspective.
In each case we are privy to the back-and-forth banter between pit crew and driver when, all of a sudden, each pit crew is forced to help guide their respective driver through the wreckage, debris and smoke.
“Oh no…oh my God…holy ****!” said Earnhardt.
No doubt, these sorts of accidents are still shocking to both pit crews and driver, despite what many of us might think.
Five fans were injured as a result of the crash and once you watch the footage it’s easy to understand why Dillon is eager to lower the speed limits on track.
Check out all the harrowing in-car action below and let us know if you think it’s time NASCAR needs to get around to a few changes.
