Marco Andretti Does Massive Backwards Burnout Across Finish Line

During practice at Iowa Speedway last week, IndyCar’s Marco Andretti lost the tail of his race car and managed to avoid the wall with a massive smoky burnout. While crossing the finish line. Backwards.

It doesn’t look like there was any damage to the car or to the occupant. Plus, the whole thing looked awesome, so I guess this didn’t turn out so bad for Andretti.
