It’s understandable if you spent the Indianapolis 500 cheering for Helio Castroneves or leering at Danica Patrick. The former overcame significant personal obstacles to win the race and the latter ended up with the highest finish ever by a woman (and got frisky with a stripper). Two great stories, sure, we suppose.

But if that’s all you paid attention to, you missed the schadenfreude-tastic day of Brazilian driver Vitor Meira, seen above playing with fire before his race-ending crash.

Thanks to JALOPNIK, we’ve got video documentation of Meira’s terrible, horribly, no-good, very bad day after the jump.
Helio Castroneves winning the Indianapolis 500 is an intriguing story to be sure, but as far as I know he’s never posed on the beach for Sports Illustrated, as today’s third-place finisher has. So here you go, racing fans. Vroom.
Danica Patrick turned in the best finish in the history of the race by someone wearing a bra (except of course for AJ Foyt).
