    It happened between segments. This was a three segment race, not a "real" Daytona race. What's really funny, at least in my opinion, is that it was a battery ​fire!

    The smoke appeared to be coming from inside the car, not from the engine compartment.

    This is the comment on the worldcarfans website "Chances are the car caught fire due to the added electrical gear necessary for a pace car since the fire came from the back."
