On Lap 3, Bobby Wawak's Chevrolet caught fire due to a ruptured fuel line, sending him careening into the inside wall. Bobby unbuckled and bailed out while the car was still moving at approximately 40 mph as the car began filling with smoke and flames. Wawak was transported to a local hospital after suffering extensive burns to his hands. He described the incident as akin to "sitting in front of a blow torch".
