A crew member from Marcus Ambrose pit runs out to catch a tire rolling onto the track. While Nascar officials throw the caution flag.

The 2009 Kobalt Tools 500 in Atlanta got a little dicey when gas man Jimmy Watts chased a loose tire through the pit and almost to the track during Sunday's race.

The tire rescue caused such a commotion that race officials had to throw the caution flag.

This YouTube video captured the well-meaning, but not so bright act.
