“Nothing else mattered,” said Dean Jones after pulling his son, Mike Jones, from a burning car over Father’s Day weekend.

The driver was racing in the NASCAR Late Model 100 at South Boston Speedway in Virginia on Saturday when his car spun out of control and burst into flames. 

His father immediately hopped over the wall, ran toward the fiery crash and reached his son before track rescue crews:

“I didn’t have time to be afraid. I had to get my son out of that car,” Jones told WDBJ-TV in Virginia.

Dad of the year.
