VIDEO: Juan Pablo Montoya Crash Delays Daytona 500, Carl Edwards Would Like Some Cheez-Its While He Waits

The Daytona 500 came to an abrupt red flag when Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into the back of an emergency vehicle full of 200 gallons of jet fuel. The jet dryer and Montoya's car exploded immediately upon impact, setting the track ablaze with Dave Blaney leaving. The drivers got out of the cars and started congregating on the track while they waited for the burned out truck to be removed and the track to be cleaned and assessed. Brad Keselowski tweeted while Carl Edwards asked for some snacks, preferably Cheez-Its.

Video of Edwards asking for some Cheez-Its after the jump:

We're still awaiting word on whether the track will be safe enough and cleared for the race to resume.
