NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr flees as car fills with smoke

NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was in the midst of a scary scene at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, on Sunday as the final race before the Round of 8 field is cemented.

Stenhouse, who was eliminated from playoff contention after the Bristol race last month, was forced out of the race at lap 96 when his car caught fire. The NBC broadcast showed smoke filling the cabin of Stenhouse’s vehicle and a fire underneath it.

Byron, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin, Chris Buescher, Tyler Reddick, Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell and Ryan Blaney will move on to the next round of the NASCAR Playoffs.
