DAYTONA BEACH, Florida - The Daytona 500, already running more than 30 hours late, was stopped for a second time when Juan Pablo Montoya slammed into a jet-dryer under caution.

Montoya was driving well behind the rest of the field when something on his car broke and he slid out of control toward the truck which carries 760 litres of jet-fuel grade kerosene.


Montoya's No. 42 Chevrolet hammered into the back of the truck, setting off an explosion and sending fuel pouring onto the famed track.

Montoya got out unharmed, although he seemed to stagger around the infield grass. The driver of the truck had to be helped from the vehicle.

Dave Blaney was leading at the time, followed by Landon Cassill, Tony Raines and David Gilliland.

All of them are relative unknowns in the Sprint Cup Series.
