It had been a magical 2019 season for Kurt Busch heading into Las Vegas Motor Speedway. However, the luck ran out at Busch’s hometown track as he cut a tire and plowed into the wall in the final Stage of the South Point 400.
Busch, who is in the thick of the championship battle, is done for the day after the crash, and will likely finish last as the other 38 cars in the field are still running at the time of Busch’s crash.

The tire went flat after damage was caused due to contact with Chase Elliott and Martin Truex Jr. on a restart.
