    Did anyone else stay up and watch the Coke Zero 400 tonight? For those that didn't the finish was a H-O-L-Y $-H-I-T moment! An absolutely HORRIFIC and SPECTACULAR crash just behind Earnhardt Jr. as he crossed the finish line. Austin Dillon's car got completely airborne and the catch fence caught it and it went from 180+ to a dead stop in seconds! :eek:
    Not only did Dillon walk away from it, he waved to the crowd! WOW...

    It was worth staying up for. Our local short track owner let someone hover a quad over the start / finish line. I bet he got some great footage.

    The safety that's built into those cars for drivers to be able to walk away from damage like that is just incredible! If only my quad was as indestructible...LOL
