Jet dryer catches on fire, halting the Daytona 500 on Lap 160 [00:34]
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The Daytona 500 is never without incident. But what happened 160 laps into the 54th edition of The Great American Race is completely unprecedented: Juan Pablo Montoya was racing around the track under caution, trying to catch up to the field, when he lost control of his car and crashed into a jet dryer that was blowing debris off the track. What ensued was something completely bizarre. Safety workers try to extinguish a fire from a jet dryer after it was hit by Juan Pablo Montoya at the Daytona 500. (Getty Images) Fuel poured out of the jet dryer, caught on fire and set a line of flames across the track rising some 20 to 30 feet into the air. Montoya got out of his car unhurt, while the driver of the jet dryer was taken to a local hospital. "I left the pits and I felt a weird vibration," Montoya explained. "We were on the backstretch and we really weren't going that fast. I could feel the car squeezing and when I told the spotter to take a look, the car just came right. "He was OK," Montoya said of the jet-dryer driver. "He just looked pretty scared." The fire was so intense Montoya's car immediately disintegrated and the race was red flagged as officials tried to put out the fire, which persisted for some five to 10 minutes. With the tires on the jet dryer completely burned off, officials needed a backhoe to remove it from the track. Dave Blaney, who's never won a Sprint Cup Series race in 397 starts, was the leader at the time of the incident ...

Wholelottashakin 2nd - The Sweetest Chant, GSP 1.22.12 [04:28]
Wholelottashakin ran a very gritty 2nd in the $100000 Sweetest Chant Stake at Gulfstream Park yesterday, Sunday, the 22nd of January. She broke well this time and was in good position early. She was nicely relaxed and unhurried going down the backstretch, a very good sign as it shows maturity in just her 4th start. Alex 'The Great' had her tucked in on the rail and saved ground all the way. At the ½ mile pole she started to get in gear and took the inside route. At the top of the stretch she kicked into gear and closed on the rest of the field but the favorite came at us from the outside with loads of forward momentum. Although Shakin matched strides at the onset of the duel, the winner prevailed but not by much. We are very proud of our filly!

At the heart of passion [01:49]
Longines sweeps you deep into the heart of the equestrian action in which it is today passionately involved. Its new commercial was shot in the grandiose setting of the Chantilly Racecourse, where Longines is the official timekeeper and where the Prix de Diane Longines is staged. Film director Cyril Clapin's camera takes you backstage for the weighing-in, where the jockeys fine-tune their concentration, and into the stalls where the horses themselves are being readied. From the palpable tension prior to a race to the collective shiver at the starting gun, you'll live the dramatic seconds ticked off by the race chronograph and experience the beauty and power of the galloping horses. Jockey and mount are then but one... Celebrating its 180th anniversary in 2012, Longines is the invaluable partner of the world's most celebrated horse races.
