Video: Dillon walks away after incredible collision

The Big One is a term used by NASCAR fans to describe any crash usually involving five or more cars. The word certainly applies to this incident involving Austin Dillon's crash at the Coke Zero 400 finish at Daytona.

The Daytona 24 Hours was held this past weekend at the Daytona International Speedway, though NASCAR events are run there as well. One of those events back in 2015 resulted in fireworks, though they weren't planned.

With the field pushing towards the finish, Dale Earnhardt Jr. crossed the line first to win the Coke Zero 400. However, things went wrong behind him when Austin Dillon was sent flying into the catchfence. Although his car became nothing more than a heap of scrap metal, he miraculously got out of his car unscathed.

In the end five spectators were treated for injuries, with one being transported to a local hospital before being released.

Watch the incredible incident play out in the video below.
