Juan Pablo Montoya Crashes Into Safety Truck During Daytona 500 [VIDEO]

When Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into a jet dryer during the 2012 Daytona 500, jet fuel started spraying everywhere.  This is one of the oddest sights you will ever see on a race track.


The Daytona 500 was delayed two hours and five minutes on Monday night when Juan Pablo Montoya collided with a jet dryer.  The collision resulted in a huge fire that was fueled by 200 gallons of jet fuel.  The race was red-flagged on lap 160 while the mess was cleaned up.  This delay came after a 30-hour delay due to rain.  The Daytona 500 was postponed on Sunday afternoon and began at 7pm ET on Monday evening. 

Luckily, nobody was injured during Montoya’s crash.  Matt Kenseth went on to win the 2012 Daytona 500.  It is Kenseth’s second career Daytona 500 win.  It was definitely the most bizarre race Kenseth has won at Daytona.  The race was marred by long delays, a crazy crash, and 10 cautions.
