At first I heard about this I was completely in disbelief.  A caution was out so how in the world can someone crash into the safety truck?  It happened as something in his car seemed to break or malfunction sending him in a spin towards the wall and then crashing hard into the safety truck.  I think I should mention the safety truck was a jet dryer truck and carrying fuel!

The crash set off a fiery explosion sending 200 gallons of kerosene onto the pavement.  Both drivers walked away unharmed but it set the Great American Race back a few hours.  Ford driver Matt Kenseth led 50 laps and the final one as he walked away as the Daytona 500 winner for the second time.
