“For those that don’t know, we had an intake backfire on the car,” Martin said in “Virginia update… more to come” YouTube video. “I had a fire with it. I got on the radio and told Javi that I had a fire and to get somebody here. Within 16 seconds, the VMP crew was on the race track putting the fire out. They’re awesome here.”
