Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series First Data 500 at Martinsville Speedway had been a pretty tame affair. That is until Kyle Busch and Aric Almirola made contact while racing for the seventh position with under 150 laps to go.
Busch and Almirola made contact which sent them both spinning in front of the field.

Almirola would be slammed into hard by Jimmie Johnson, while Busch — who is still in the Round of 8 in the Playoffs — suffered minimal damage.
Kyle Larson made an incredible move to dodge the two spinning cars to keep his Playoff hopes very much alive.
