On lap 169 of a Geico 500, eighteen drivers were involved in the massive crash triggered by NASCAR racers AJ Allmendinger and Chase Elliott.
It all started with AJ Allmendinger bump-drafting Elliot, sending his Chevy towards the wall. And then, Allmendinger’s car got turned onto its side and then onto its roof as the pack formed behind them.
Once I got to Chase I got loose, AJ Allmendinger said. I barely tapped him. And I tried to get off him at that point. It was too late.
It’s Talladega. I’m not the big fan of it. You are up front, and you have got a chance to go for it, and racing happens.
According to USA Today, there were no injuries among the pack, after leaving the care center, the two drivers that initiated the crash had the short discussion among themselves.
He just apologized, said Elliot. I don’t know that it was really his fault, per se. He had the big run and kind of got to my bumper and was in the bad spot.
He was skewed the little to my left rear. When that happens, it just unloads these vehicles too much. After this incident, NASCAR red-flagged the race for almost 27 minutes in order to clean up the track.
