Nice try Dillon, but Larson got his engine into the crowd. Yours never left the infield.

You'd think at the very least that Dillon would be in shock, not up and walking around. I got in a very small crash years ago and got up and walked, but then I blacked out from shock for a good 20 minutes.

There's definitely going to be crowd injuries, but hopefully nothing major. You can see all kinds of little debris launching into the crowd.

I started out not caring for Dale, but over time I've come to enjoy him.
Looks like Jeff got 6th, which is pretty decent.
Hope everyone in the stands is okay.

Was kinda cool to see the first dudes to the 3 were Junior's pit crew.

Also, somewhere, Bobby Allison is mad he doesnt have the best catch fence wreck anymore.

Probably need a bigger restrictor plate, maybe take another 50hp off it, that'll probably fix it.

Dillon's OK. Hope the fans are too, didn't see much activity. Gordon finished, which is like a win here. Dang Ol Junyer won.

Good night. Better tonight than tom...later today.

At least the catch fence stopped most of the things?

What the gently caress was he doing, ARCA levels of what the gently caress. You see tons of smoke slow the gently caress down and come to a crawl.

Jimmy Johnson brought up a good point. If another car gets airborne it could have gone through that hole. I doubt it's possible to have a fence just shrug off that kind of impact, but that's a terrifying thought.

Any higher, he would have cleared the fence. Only the reinforcement held it in. Miracle no tires or other parts went through.

Yes, because it's Brad's fault his car can't go from 180+ to a crawl within a few seconds.
