Noah Gragson is one of the more interesting and entertaining personalities in all of NASCAR. Following Friday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway, the driver of the No. 9 JR Motorsports machine took an opportunity for a unique form of celebration following a seventh-place finish.
Gragson walked up to the grandstands and accepted a can of beer from a fan. Gragson then performed a shotgun of said beer.
Noah gonna Noah. 😅

One of the fans in the group that handed the beer to Gragson, Cory Mitchell, shared video of the shotgun to Twitter on Saturday.

While it was a funny post-race moment and I’m sure it made the fan’s weekend, if not their life, I’m not so sure that this moment falls in line with NASCAR’s current COVID policies. While we have not seen drivers penalized for COVID violations yet, it will be interesting to see how NASCAR judges this post-race moment.
Regardless, as the NASCAR Xfinity Series twitter account said, “Noah gonna Noah.”
