Uh, that’s not supposed to happen.
During a pit stop after the conclusion of Stage 1 of Monday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco 300, Jeffrey Earnhardt left pit road in his No. 0 Contec Chevrolet Camaro, but there was just one problem — a rather big problem.
The jack was still stuck under his car.

Earnhardt would have to return to pit road to remove the jack, but luckily the issue happened under caution.
The cousin of Dale Earnhardt Jr., is making his first NXS start of the 2020 season. Charlotte Motor Speedway is of course the site of Earnhardt’s career-best finish (third) which occurred last year while driving for Joe Gibbs Racing.
