A weekend race car driver is back on the track, after a terrifying crash at a speedway in Pennsylvania.

Mike Stofflet was behind the wheel at an amateur race a week ago when he lost control on a turn.

Stofflet's car rolled onto its side and fuel immediately started pouring out, pooling directly underneath him.

He became trapped and started screaming for help.

"When it caught fire, I was like, 'I gotta get out' I have a family at home. I don't want to die here today. I kind of got lost in the flame for a split second. I felt somebody's arm come in and grab me. He pulled me right out and put me on the ground," Stofflet said.

Incredibly, Stofflet was able to walk away uninjured. He also managed to get back into the same car just 30 minutes later to finish the very next race, coming in 5th place.
