On Fire at Sonoma

July 18, 2004

One of Junior's most memorable moments, though obviously not one of his best, occurred during practice for an American Le Mans Series race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. The car became engulfed in flames after Junior spun and hit a retaining wall, rupturing the fuel cell. Junior was flown to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for moderate burns on his face and legs.
