NASCAR XFinity Series driver John-Hunter Nemechek unwittingly set fire to the Martinsville track while celebrating his win on Saturday night.

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver performed burnouts after winning at the short track in a crushing performance for his second win of the season.

However, as you can see in the video below, things got a bit too hot as he took the celebration burn-out to a whole new level.

Nemechek currently enjoys a healthy championship lead in the regular season, with a top 10 finish in every race, bar the recent trip to Formula 1 venue Circuit of the Americas in Austin.
