But as he pulled in, he managed to smash into his jackman, Billy Rock, at some speed sending him spinning through the air.

Rock was taken to hospital for checks after the scary-looking collision and is now “alert and awake”, according to NASCAR officials.

It was later revealed Dauzat’s car’s brakes failed and he was unable to pull his vehicle to a stop.

After the race, Dauzat said: “I just lost brakes when I was coming in.

“I told him, ‘I have no brakes,’ and he came out in front.”

Dauzat failed to finish the wild race in the NASCAR Truck Series meet – with only nine of the 32 cars making it to the end.

One driver’s car burst into flames after just three laps, before a major melee on lap 54 saw ten cars knocked out of the race.

The race was eventually forced into overtime due to the sheer volume of thrills and spills.
