Video: Driveshaft Flies Out of Tim Viens’ Truck As He Attempts to Leave Pit Road For Qualifying

Wow, you see something new every year in NASCAR. In Friday’s qualifying session for the season-opening NASCAR Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy 250 at Daytona International Speedway, we saw something truly unique.

As Tim Viens revved up his No. 83 CMI Motorsports truck to take the track, his truck didn’t move. His crew attempted to shove the truck in an effort to get it to launch from pit road. Then, the driveshaft dropped right out from underneath the truck.

The No. 83 truck will not make the field for Friday night’s race, but it did leave a lasting impact on the sport as this video will be passed around social media for years to come.
