Wow, not a lot of runoff room in that section! Looks like a combo of dirty/dusty track, cold tires and too much throttle (from someone stilling learning about his car/his abilities[?])spun him around.

I think he needed about another 10-15 feet to complete the half spin. With a little more room he would have been fine and lived to take another lap with the knowledge of what he and his car are capable of.
