Daytona 500 2012: Juan Pablo Montoya Hits Jet Dryer, Fire May End Race [VIDEO]

The 2012 Daytona 500 is going to be a memorable one, that's for sure.

Start with the first Monday delay in the history of the race. Then, a crash on lap two put everyone on alert. And now Juan Pablo Montoya's crash with just 40 laps to go may have ended the race.

This was absolutely unreal. During a caution, Montoya somehow spun into a jet dryer on the back stretch. His car slid up the track, past one jet dryer and into the back of a second. And everything exploded into flames.

The track exploded into flames and this could very well end the race. There is significant damage to the asphalt as a result of the crash and the fire is just now out. It was an absolutely odd scene -- one I'm not sure we'll ever see again.
