Daytona 500 service truck

I know for a fact if that jet dryer would have been pulled using the 6.7L Ford, it would have been able to get out of the way!

Umm, I'd be jumping out really fast and not running around with my butt on fire.

No doubt the truck driver was to shook up to think about driving it off the track with that bright glow behind him.

I'm sure he didn't have a clue as to what just happened to him.

Thanks,

No i meant like one of the other workers that was standing around right before or as it was catching on fire... I do know and understand its dangerous and i would never expect to have them put there life on the line for a truck... just seems like the situation should of had come faster thinking more high risk guys willing to step up for the challenge since i believe they are all in flame retardant suits as is and probably get paid big bucks to fix the situation on a split second decision... Regardless no one was seriously injured and I believe there was no major damage to the track ( i have not followed up on any coverage regarding the track so im not sure about its current condition) but everyone made it out ok and thats what matters

I am going to have to think the right action was taken.

I am a career firefighter, we tend to work under the principal of "risk versus reward", "risk a lot to save a lot, risk little to save little, risk nothing to save nothing" And as the times change, property becomes less in the equation.
At that incident there was no reward.

No life safety was involved so the proper action was to knock the fire down from a safe distance. Although I would that the one rig that pulled up to the bottom of the track where the fluid was flowing was not in the best tactical position.

My first thoughts while watching it and thinking "hop in and move" quickly changed. I figured as soon as you start pulling away the rear axle would lose traction either due to tire failure or whatever fluids were there and the rear would slide down the track with the nose pointing towards the guard rail.
And then have the flames race uphill towards the cab.

The suits are fire retardant, not fire proof. Fire retardant just means they will not support combustion in a normal atmosphere.
None of them have SCBA's on. In my opinion that means they are not properly equipped to fight fire. And that probably will not change until some unfortunate individual gets his face burned off or sears his lungs and dies.

Thanks,
Duane
