Let's face it, most race car drivers are crazy - it kinda comes with the territory. And dirt oval drivers are crazier than most - but the Cuckoo's Nest Award for the craziest, ballsiest, shake-your-head-in-utter-disbelief race car driver of the year goes to Pennsylvania's Michael Stofflet.
In this in-car video we see how he flips his Dirt Modified car on to its side going into a tight corner at Mahoning Valley Speedway in Lehighton, north-west of Philadelphia - and almost immediately, a stream of raw petrol starts to run down the inside of the body panels as the fuel system begins leaking.
As the marshals come running to help, you can hear him telling them to roll the car back on its wheels.
"Are you sure?" they ask, but as they begin to move the car, it catches fire, with Stofflet still inside, and the cab-cam shot of his left hand and the back of his helmet is quickly replaced by a screenful of flames that would do justice to a Michael Bey movie.
NOW THIS IS WHERE IT GETS REALLY CRAZY
Not only did Stofflet, who was wearing fireproof Nomex overalls and gloves but did not have a Nomex balaclava under his crash helmet, walk away with nothing more than a stiff neck and a mild sunburn, but his crew pushed the car into the pits and fixed it in time for the feature race.
So Stofflet strapped himself back into the car that had so nearly incinerated him, started from the back of the grid and finished fifth, saying afterwards that the well-cooked undercarriage felt "a little loose".
Like we said, crazy.
