Dale Jr and Austin Dillon Talk About That Terrifying NASCAR Crash In Daytona
Dale Jr wins the NASCAR Coke Zero 400 but most of the focus is still on Austin Dillon surviving that horrific crash.
In a subdued interview with Dale Jr. he say's he saw the crash in his mirror as it was happening and it was frightening. He said he was very happy to hear that for the most part everyone was OK. Remember Dillon drives the No. 3 car — the same as Dale Earnhardt Sr., who was killed in a wreck during the Daytona 500 in 2001.
In a interview with TODAY's Matt Lauer, Austin Dillon says all the safety equipment worked and that's why he's here today. Imagine going 198 miles per hour and crashing. Not only crashing but becoming airborne, hitting a fence, thinking the crash is over then the #2 car slides into him which he said was the worst part. Believe it or not he's only a little sore and will be racing this weekend at the Kentucky Speedway.
