The Chevrolet SS pace car has recently caught fire during the recent NASCAR race in Daytona Beach, Florida, for no apparent reason.
If you though that not owning an exotic and powerful supercar will keep you safe from the spontaneous combustion phenomenon you’re wrong, because, apparently, owning a Chevrolet SS, which is far from being a supercar, can have the same sad consequences. Chevrolet’s marketing department had a terrible day last weekend, at the NASCAR race in Daytona Beach, Florida, after the 2014 SS pace car has went up in flames. The vehicle’s cabin has been filled with smoke and driver Brett Bodine had to stop it and leave its cockpit.
The good news is that Brett Bodine and his co-pilot have made it out without any injuries but the bad news is that NASCAR fans out there, who have seen the incident, will think twice before getting ready to go to a Chevy dealership and place an order for the SS. Chevrolet hasn’t provided an official explanation for the incident just yet but we do have a video with the unfortunate event, so you may try to solve this puzzle yourselves.
