Freak crash ends Daytona 500 as Monotya crashes into jet dryer truck

NASCAR's jewel-in-the-crown event came to a premature conclusion following a bizarre accident involving Juan Pablo Montoya. The rain-delayed event was cut short by 40 laps after the Colombian crashed into a Jet Truck used to clear debris from the track surface. Nobody was hurt in the incident. Montoya said, "I didn't think about the truck, I thought I'm actually hitting the jet and it's not going to be fun".

I was confused there for a minute Fernando, I thought it said a freak crashed into a truck, I think I get it now, it was a freaky crash.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
No Ambrosia, you were right the first time. Well burger boy, you surpassed yourself this time, blowing up a safety vehicle when you had 2.5 miles of track to avoid it.
jpm   Juan Pablo Montoya
Man, the car steered so bad I was bummed, I was tight on the low dude, then got loose to the wide.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I have no idea what you're talking about you cabbage-brained cretin, but please feel free to continue explaining how you tried to recreate the Hindenburg disaster.
jpm   Juan Pablo Montoya
Total wipeout into the plane on the truck thing man, I nearly got burned so bad like we didded barbeque the chicken wings on our trailer.

Congratulations on ending the most prestigious "race" of the year and ruining everyone's night Montoya. You must be about as popular as Gary Glitter at a school playground.
jpm   Juan Pablo Montoya
I run good as I can but this be making a real bad for the fans. The worstest thing is I almost done broke my fucking head.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Thank god for the safety of modern NASCARs, wiped out a jet engine, they should probably start shipping those things out to Iraq.
jpm   Juan Pablo Montoya
The team do built my car so big so I can wreck it awesome, gotta speak a gratitude to my Target-Cottonelle-sponsored-Earnhardt-Ganassi-Racing-Chevrolet-Car 42 crew.

I love NASCAR-english, can't string two sensible words together and yet total eloquence when it comes to sponsors.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Perhaps I'm missing something, and far be it from me to question the intelligence of the NASCAR officials, but where is the logic in having a bomb on wheels operating as a safety vehicle?
jackie   Jackie Stewart
There is indeed a serious safety compromise apparent here in the necessity to achieve an optimally clean track surface to accommodate the peculiar characteristics of oval racing, while being obliged to furnish the equipment required to achieve this cleanliness with an inherently dangerous substance, in itself capable of initiating a disaster should a chain of events conspire to compromise it's integrity.

How did you ever work as a commentator in America? By the way I heard you're looking for work in the States yourself Rubens, I may have just the thing for you.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
Well Michael, given I am still so full of energy and enthusiasm, in addition to being experienced and a nice guy, the Americans would love me. I feel I owe it to them to race.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Problem solved, it's called Jet Dryer Truck racing, if you win you're a hero, if you crash you explode, real Hollywood. I'm hoping you'll be a big hit, literally.
DC   David Coulthard
Cool, I guess Juan will get to go on Air Crash Investigation now Martin. I'd love to get on telly.
MBrundle   Martin Brundle
You work for the BBC David, it's your job to be on television. And no, the crash happened at Daytona Speedway, he collided with a Jet Truck.
DC   David Coulthard
I see, is that like an Air Bus?
MBrundle   Martin Brundle
Christ, it's simple David, a Jet Truck is a ground vehicle to dry the track in NASCAR and an Airbus is an actual aeroplane people fly in.
DC   David Coulthard
My favourite aeroplane movie is Top Gun, that was definitely Cole Trickle's best film after he retired from NASCAR.
