This is NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. competing in a dirt track race in Du Quoin, Illinois. He made a charge from the back of the pack to take the win, sometimes even with half his car on the catch fence.

It’s certainly very exciting, glitter gold helmet and all.

The question is—is this single 15 second lap that Loudpedal put on Instagram more exciting than this year’s entire NASCAR season? I know which one I watched.
