Anthony Alfredo’s Andy’s Frozen Custard Chevrolet Camaro ended up upside down at the exit of turn two in Saturday Night’s Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway in a scary accident with 28 laps remaining in the opening race of the “Round of 8” for the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
The accident started on a late-race restart when Alfredo and Justin Allgaier [No. 7] ducked below the apron on the frontstretch to make a move on the No. 68 of Brandon Brown. Allgaier was unable to merge back onto the racetrack safely, sending Alfredo’s No. 21 careening into the outside wall incredibly hard.
What a wild ride for @AnthonyAlfredo.
