Daytona 500: Fire Breaks Out, Twitter Has A Blast
Written by Chris Crum
  • It’s been one wacky event after another for this Daytona 500. It was initially supposed to begin at 1:00 on Sunday. The rain delayed it for hours, before it was finally cancelled for the day, to be postponed until Monday at Noon. After all the complaints that it would be happening while everyone was at work (oh yeah, and some more rain), they decided to reschedule it for 7:00PM.

    It did begin, and then during the second lap, there was a crash involving Jimmie Johnson and GoDaddy girl Danica Patrick. Then, later in the race, an explosion occurred when Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into a jet dryer truck.

    Here’s what the Twitterverse is saying about that:

    OMG! JET FUEL FIRE AT THE DAYTONA
