Two minor grass fires were set ablaze out at Darlington Raceway behind Turns 1 and 2 during the lasts stages of the NASCAR Cup Series race.

The Smoke rose high above the advertising signs in the first corner at Darlington Raceway.

A safety team quickly came onto the scene to extinguished the flames. A fire truck came a short time later to douse the hot spots, leaving two dark areas in the otherwise green grass.

It is still unclear how the fires started and the investigation is ongoing.


Driver #2 Brad Keselowski won the second stage of the NASCAR race at Darlington Speedway, the sport’s first live race in over two months.
