It appeared that Hamlin got loose underneath Keselowski heading into the turn. Hamlin slipped up and collected Keselowski. Blaney had nowhere to go and piled in as well.
Hamlin and Keselowski were able to get their cars back on track, while Blaney — the point leader heading into the race — is done for the day.
