Junior Johnson

In case you ever wondered why Junior Johnson is such a giant figure in NASCAR check out about 60 seconds of this video. He is racing in the 1953 Southern 500 and he flips his car on the back stretch. He climbs out while cars are still flying by and pops his head. Removes what, I guess, is the air filter, removes his shirt and uses his shirt to smother the fire on his engine. I bet Babe Ruth never did anything like that.
