A father jumped a track barrier to pull his son from the fiery wreck of his race car on the South Boston Speedway on Father’s Day weekend, WDBJ said.
Dean Jones was watching his son Mike compete in the Halifax Insurance 100 race on June 16 at the speedway when Mike’s car hit off a competitor while making a turn, spinning the vehicle out of control and crashing.
“I didn’t have time to be afraid. I had to get my son out of that car,” Jones told WDBJ.
Dean Jones was put on probation by Nascar for jumping the barrier. Mike Jones was working on rebuilding his car. Credit: Memory Lane Video via Storyful
