Pickup truck catches fire during NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky

As if seven cautions in the first 100 laps of the Quaker State 400 wasn’t enough chaos at Kentucky Speedway, the mayhem continued in the parking lot, where a pickup truck caught fire in a big way.

If you look closely, you’ll see an enormous grill in the bed of the truck and what might have been a gas can next to it. 

Worse yet, Mark Story of the Lexington Herald-Leader later reported on Twitter that there was a person inside the truck when it caught on fire. Fortunately, track officials acted quickly to remove the person before any apparent serious injuries occurred.

It’s never a good night when the tailgate party goes up in smoke and leaves your ride home — plus a couple others — in total ruins.
