During the filming of small tires at Maple Grove Raceway on Friday, two cars wrecked. One even caught on fire.

The cars were competing during the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings event in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. These two cars were one of the first ones down after a lengthy delay due to rain.

According to Amber Anderson, who shared the video on Facebook, the Patriot car tagged the wall. She also wrote that the driver was OK.

However, down by the finish line, the car was burning and engulfed in flames. About 15 seconds into the clip, the driver was seen walking away from the car.

The car was burning so badly that thick black smoke was going into the air. The clip ended before the safely crew showed up to put the fire out.

Due to the fire, the car sustained extensive damage.

This will likely cause another delay in the action. So far two day, the action was delayed twice.

It is not clear at this time what Pilgrim Studios plan is next. Will they continue with The Great 8? Or will they call it for the day? We’re not sure.

The clean up after this fire will take some time. And there is a 10 pm local time curfew to stop racing.

They may or may not get more racing in for the night. If they can’t get it in tonight, they’ll have to start off early in the morning to catch up barring any more issues with Mother Nature.
