NASCAR driver's car flips upside down, smashes into fence in terrifying race-ending wreck

The Coke Zero 400 race at Daytona International Speedway ended in a horrifying car crash Sunday night.

As drivers crossed the finish line, led by Dale Earnhardt Jr., a massive crash took place. It sent Austin Dillon’s car flying through the fair, smashing into the catch-fence, then flipping upside down as other drivers piled up.

Several other cars caught fire and spun out across the track, but amazingly, no drivers were seriously injured.

Here’s video of the crash:

The ease with which Dillon’s car went airborn is terrifying:

A fan caught intense video of the crash from the stands nearby:

Dillon’s crew rushed over to his car and pulled him out, and he let the crowd know he was OK:

As Deadspin’s Timothy Burke noted, Earnhardt’s father, Dale Earnhardt Sr., was killed in a wreck at Daytona 14 years ago, and fans were injured two years ago at Daytona when a car tore through the catch fence in a crash.

According to CNN, 13 spectators were evaluated, eight declined treatment, four were treated on site, and one was taken to the hospital.
