VIDEO: Miguel Paludo Unhurt After Massive Crash In Daytona Truck Race

NASCAR drivers have now gone headfirst into the inside retaining wall at Daytona International Speedway on consecutive days.

Fortunately, thanks entirely to the innovative SAFER barrier, both Danica Patrick on Thursday and Miguel Paludo in tonight's Camping World Truck Series race walked away unhurt.

Paludo was running third late in Friday's Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway when he got shuffled out of the pack and took a vicious lick into the inside wall near the entrance to pit road.

The wreck was very similar to Patrick's crash during the Gatorade Duel on Thursday, but at a different location on the track.

Clearly, the SAFER barrier continues to save lives in NASCAR and all of motorsports. Can you imagine where racing would be today without it? Though the HANS device and enhanced cockpits also deserve credit, the soft walls are perhaps the most important safety innovation in racing history.

Here's a video of Paludo's wreck:
