Sure, we can look back now and make jokes about the odds of Juan Pablo Montoya having his car fail in the exact spot necessary to spin into a jet dryer. "It takes just Juan driver to take out a jet dryer," or "the probability of that was Juan in a million." Yep, the jokes are making their rounds today.
But, we're lucky to be able to joke about that and fortunate that everyone was ok. The mass of the explosion and the speed with which the flames spread in Turn 3 was very dangerous. I'm thankful that everyone was unharmed.
It's only because of the immediate response of Daytona's track services and plain, old, good fortune that we can all make light of this, and I can make inferences to the accident as I discuss Brad Keselowski's Twitter account.
