Uncensored video reveals Dale Earnhardt Jr. was too worried about wreck to celebrate his Daytona win

Austin Dillon's crash during the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona was one of the scariest NASCAR wrecks in recent memory. Luckily everyone walked away from the crash relatively unscathed, but video has emerged of what the wreck was like for race leader Dale Earnhardt Jr.

The big thing to pay attention to here is that Earnhardt isn't concerned with the race at all. The second the crash happens, his mind stays locked on Dillon's safety and trying to find out if everyone in the stands was OK. Only after all those things are squared away does he begin to think about what's happening in his race.

In case you missed the actual crash, here's video.
