If you have Pye Barker Fire Safety as a primary sponsor, then you should probably be setting things on fire for the purpose of sponsor activation, right? John Hunter Nemechek certainly agrees with that notion.

After leading a whopping 198 of 250 laps on Saturday, Nemechek was doing an epic burnout on the frontstretch, when his No. 20 Toyota GR Supra literally ignited into a ball of flames, adding some heat to his celebration.

The best part, though, is that the fireball erupting from the rear end of Nemechek’s Toyota Supra wasn’t even enough for him to stop doing a burnout, as he continued to ignite both the track and his car by continuing his celebration.

But, don’t worry John Hunter Nemechek fans, he was able to get out of the car before it burned to the ground, and was able to celebrate the second NASCAR Xfinity Series win of his season for Joe Gibbs Racing.
