Pace car catches on fire at Sprint Unlimited GIF

If the Sprint Unlimited couldn’t have got any crazier… the pace car randomly caught on fire running pace laps.

Brett Bodine was driving the pace car and quickly pulled off the track as the trunk of the Chevrolet SS caught fire. The cause of the fire was determined to be a battery pack used to power external lights. No one was harmed by the fire… well, except for the pace car.


Kyle Busch said he only saw the aftermath, the men running away from the car.  “It seemed like they were running for their lives, afraid of a little fire. Maybe they need firesuits now.” he said.

It was a full moon tonight. Maybe that was the reason for all the strange occurrences at Unlimited?
