Daytona 500 2012: Here Comes The Shuttle Bus

We've probably seen it all at this point, as the Daytona 500 has gone from weird to completely off the rails. At present, the race remains under a red flag following a fiery crash on the back stretch. The crash occurred under a yellow flag and involved Juan Pablo Montoya slamming into a jet dryer, igniting a crazy fire.

Amazingly, NASCAR is ready to go racing once again. Drivers have been out of their cars for almost the entire duration of the delay, and now need help climbing back in. Bring on the shuttle!

If you missed the crash, here's video, a couple gifs of the impact and gifs of the aftermath.

So now we have a shuttle bus with one member from each crew heading down the track in a NASCAR version of Noah's Ark. Is anyone expecting this to turn into the latest installment of Speed? I mean, we've now seen rain, the first-ever Daytona 500 run at night and a jet dryer explosion following an odd crash. Oh, and a shuttle bus driving the wrong way on the track.

There has to be something to top this all. Good news! Still 40 laps of insanity to go!
