So far as vintage crashes go this one’s a doozy (to use period appropriate phraseology). Daytona International Speedway in early 1960 saw the single largest NASCAR accident in history, 37 cars out of a field of 68 were wrecked and yet amazingly, there were no serious injuries. Switch on your volume to enjoy vintage narration and 60s Hitchcock-style tension music at it’s best.
