This is one of the biggest car pile ups in the history of NASCAR. With all but three cars involved in an astonishingly dangerous accident at the end of the Coke Zero 400 Daytona race, this weekend at the track could have been one of the most horrific ever. However, absolutely exceptional safety precautions were all in place and no major injuries were sustained. True, 13 spectators were injured, but none of them seriously. One of the cars that made the biggest fuss is the car driven by Austin Dillon. Hew went airborne at almost 200 mph and hit a fence. Luckily, the fence kept him from landing onto the spectators and the safety of its car guaranteed him to survive and even stay conscious regardless of the massive crash.
The winner of the race was Dale Earnhardt Jr, but it is obvious that the race results are absolutely irrelevant.
What is impressive is that a lot of crewmen from other teams rushed to help Austin Dillon after the cars passed the place of the accident. After he reported that he is OK and conscious the fans and everyone else was relieved.
This is one of the most bewildering accidents in the history of NASCAR and only thanks to incredible safety precautions including the fence, great roll cage inside the cars and the sheer form of the track, no major injuries were sustained. Although this isn’t something that should happen ever anywhere this is a testimony of the scientific research done in order to protect the spectators and the drivers in this incredible race series.
