Nearly three years after drunk NASCAR fan No. 1 climbed the catch fence during a race at Richmond International Raceway, it happened again Sunday.

Tires have been particularly tricky in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway this time around, and one of the recent victims was the Monster Energy car of Kurt Busch. If Monster hasn’t made a figurative bang as the new title sponsor so far, well, it has now—literally.
Maybe “falling apart” is a bit of an overstatement, but “crumbling around the edges” is certainly accurate. This isn’t the first time the concrete track surface has been an issue, either. This time, it was the pit lane that started to crumble apart at the seam.
