Me too, that accident was incredible.
Did you notice the fluid dumping out of the car? I though fuel was in a bladder to prevent fires.

That was an amazingly brutal crash. Last report said serious but not life threatening condition. Hard to believe people can live through that stuff. Good luck to him.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery . Drivers surviving horrific crashes at that type of speed is a testament to Nascars attention to safety , they cant control all outcomes but they do a amazing job .

The bladder prevents explosions from fumes. The gas can still leak out.

I do not believe the fluid seen leaking was gasoline. Looked to me like oil. Probably from the oil cooler system. NASCAR race cars utilize a dry sump system with an oil cooler that carries about 5 gallons of oil.

It's the back part of the cockpit. Behind the rear axle and the trunk lid.

Yes I saw the fluid pouring out. It looks to be greenish color.
