VIDEO: Amazing Audio Of Juan Pablo Montoya Daytona 500 Crash Setting Jet Fuel Fire

In a never-before-seen turn of events at an already bizarre Monday night Daytona 500, Juan Pablo Montoya slammed into the back of a jet dryer full of 200 gallons of jet fuel. It was an amazing scene as it created an instant fireball, setting the track ablaze as the race was immediately put under a red flag. Both Montoya and the driver of the jet dryer were treated and are doing fine. Dave Blaney currently leads but it appears we will get back to racing and finish out the final 40 laps shortly, after significant work to repair the track.

It was an amazing scene, with perhaps even more amazing audio as it sounded like an airplane grazing overhead. Video with the amazing sound of the crash and explosion below:
