The 5-Hour Energy 301 at New Hampshire didn’t end exactly as Alex Bowman planned. But when a safety worker dropped to the ground with fire extinguisher in tow, it only added more fuel to the fire—pun intended.

Bowman’s car went up in flames after his right front tire went down. Then, after waiting quite a while for safety workers to show up, he watch his right front go down … followed by his rear.

His reaction to the tumble was glorious.

Bowman explained why he threw his hands up following the embarrassing fall for the worker. It was apparently more about frustration over the car and what would follow the incident than the physical action of toppling to the ground.

The 22-year-old driver then answered questions from fans throughout the night about a range of topics that included his upcoming mixtape and how to (hilariously) ace a driving test before addressing some haters.

Bowman might be on a small team, but he has a lot of personality. When safety workers and keyboard warriors try to drag you down, rise above the flames. Too soon?
