A fire erupted underneath the hood of Kurt Busch's car in Sunday's NASCAR race at Martinsville Speedway, creating quite the scene. The incident occurred on lap 485 of the 500 lap race.
According to Busch, it was a brake failure that ignited the blaze that engulfed the front of his Chevrolet. When the car started billowing smoke he pulled up the track and was able to escape unharmed.

For Busch it was a particularly difficult afternoon as he experienced an issue with his fuel pump earlier in the afternoon which sent him to the garage for repairs. Busch finished the STP Gas Booster 500 in the 37th position.
