Bad crash 

While this is probably less scary to most of our readers than our story the other day about the flight out of Newark Airport that lost an engine in a fireball on takeoff Saturday night, it is a chilling sight.

Nascar veteran, Mark Martin, gets caught up in traffic and there is a spinout in front of him. He is collected in the crash, and his car whips on to pit row. The angle is so odd and so atypical, that suddenly he is in severe danger. The back entrance to pit row, the way the drivers go behind the pit wall is not padded. It is a concrete abutment. Martin smashes into it hard, just behind the driver's seat. At the 1 minute 30 second mark of the video, you can see oil shoot from underneath the car.

Martin walked away, very lucky he wasn't a fireball.
