Chase Brisco has been having a tough time during this afternoon's Federated Auto Parts 400 in Richmond.

With less than 50 laps to go, Brisco is currently 27th after missing several laps when his car caught fire.

The 27-year-old, who drives a Ford Mustang No. 14 car for Stewart-Haas Racing, had to dig a hole to put out the fire.

Thankfully, Brisco was able to do just that and then started the race again.

Overall, Brisco is lucky that she didn't suffer any serious injuries or burns today.

The fact that he was able to resume driving is an added bonus.

After a relatively strong start – a third-place finish at Daytona in February and a win in Phoenix in March – until the 2022 season,

Brisco only posted two more top 10 finishes. Today is his 10th-straight race to round out the top 10.

Meanwhile, Kevin Harvick is trying to stop Chris Busher, Joey Logano and the others to take the win.
