A "Shark Tank" entrepreneur wrecks at Daytona and lives to talk about it. Millionaire businessman Robert Herjavec was participating in the inaugural Ferrari Challenge event at Daytona International Speedway on Fri., Jan. 25, 2013 when he veered off course, according to Yahoo! News. He was treated and released from the the infield care center. The car itself didn't fare much worse. It was expected to be operational for at least one of Saturday's events.
It isn't every day that a "Shark Tank" entrepreneur wrecks a car at a racetrack. Although any mention of the incident is unlikely to make it onto his successful television show, he is no doubt lucky to have survived the crash without injury so he can continue his presence on the series. No doubt his wife, Diane Plese, and their three children are relieved that he's okay.
This isn't the first time the "Shark Tank" entrepreneur wrecked a Ferrari race car. In 2012, he crashed a Ferrari reportedly worth $350,000 while racing. Undaunted, he borrowed a friend's car and finished the race, reported Celebrity Net Worth. He finished fifth for the race. The following day, he drove the borrowed Ferrari into third place.
Long before the "Shark Tank" entrepreneur wrecked at Daytona, he was known for another reason. He was one of the stars of "Dragons' Den," the Canadian version of "Shark Tank." Herjavec starred on the show for six seasons. His net worth is an estimated $100 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
