NASCAR race ends with car flipping into fence

Austin Dillon was somehow okay after a huge wreck at the end of the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.

As Dale Earnhardt Jr. raced under the checkered flag to score a dominating victory early Monday morning at Daytona International Speedway, complete mayhem broke out behind him with Austin Dillon flying into the catchfence.

Dillon's car landed upside down, and track workers and crew members from various teams quickly arrived on the scene. The 25-year-old emerged uninjured and raised his hands to the crowd. However, three fans were being treated for unspecified injuries, according to NBC Sports.

The view from the other side of the fence was terrifying.

Worst wreck I've ever seen in my life. #NASCAR #CoCaColaZero400 #cokezero400 @disupdates
