When it comes to NASCAR racing, fans can always count on superspeedway tracks to provide exciting racing and spectacular crashes, but adding in some Japanese voiceover commentary is a great way to crank up the intensity a little more. One such commentator gives an entertainingly overzealous play-by-play during a final-lap crash at last weekend's Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega, and while we admittedly have absolutely no idea what he's saying, our heart race increases just by virtue of his intensity.

Approaching the checkered flag, the crash was caused by one truck getting another truck loose, and fortunately, ESPN is reporting that the only major injury that was suffered during the scary crash was Justin Lofton's broken thumb. A video of the crash – and the comical commentating – is posted below.

UPDATE: As many of you have pointed out, we've been duped. Thank you all for bringing this to our attention. The enthusiastic commentary appears to have originated from a drift event, which can be seen here. At least the information from ESPN was correct...

      Unfortunately, the commentary didn't match the video. That was taken from a popular drifting series in Japan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8My3D3GroY

      The Japanese language by nature uses more syllables to express the same thing that in other languages would take fewer syllables. That's because Japanese has fewer possible phonetic sounds than many other languages. This language trait results in faster everyday speech. That may be misunderstood as part of the "excitement" of sports commentary.

      It's like when the North Koreans believe what they read in the Onion. This is totally fake. Do some research, please.

      Probably the only way to make a boring nascar race watchable... even if the commentary is completely irrelevant. I wonder what the japanese phrase for turn left is.

        Oh look, it's the prozac-queen pondnavy. For someone who spent an entire week crying hysterically about how I was "rude" and "immature" (when in fact I wasn't and you were being extremely oversensitive)... here you are, posting something that is LEGITIMATELY rude and immature, not to mention racially stereotypical. I always knew you were a fake, but your hypocrisy is now "documented above for all to see". ;) Exposed.
