Wanna get away? In a moment that felt like an iconic Southwest airlines advertisement, a safety worker took a massive spill onto his, uh, rear. The worker was attempting to clean up a gasoline spill from Spencer Boyd’s gas can, which fell onto the track surface at Bristol.

Here is video of the safety worker’s massive fall:

And here is the incident from Spencer Boyd, which led to the unfortunate fall for the safety worker. Boyd left pit road with the fuel can still engaged in the side of his No. 90 car. After weaving back and forth, the gas can fell out and gas began leaking everywhere.

Here was the scene:

Boyd did receive a penalty for removing equipment from pit road, but that was of little consolation to the poor NASCAR safety worker who took a fall.

If you’re wondering if the safety worker was okay, physically, yes he is okay. According to Bob Pockrass, the safety worker radioed to the tower that his pride took a big hit.

This isn’t the only safety worker fail in recent NASCAR memory. A month ago, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course, a safety truck worked it’s way on track, but Corey LaJoie was still in the middle of his qualifying run at the time.

Luckily, LaJoie avoided the safety truck.
