Famed NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. crashed during the Duck Commander 500 in Fort Worth, Texas on Monday after hitting a patch of wet grass and blowing out a tire. The race had already been postponed on Sunday due to poor weather conditions. The driver then drove into the outside wall and his No. 88 Chevrolet caught fire. As a result of the crash, Earnhardt Jr. was guaranteed to finish 43rd, his first last-place finish since 2007, the Associated Press reports. The driver was not hurt.
Joey Logano went on to win the race in a last-lap pass of rival Jeff Gordon.
