Saturday’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series Clean Harbors 200 at Kansas Speedway came to a screeching halt for Playoff contender Tyler Ankrum on lap 39, when he was swept up in a massive pileup.
Trevor Bayne, Brett Moffitt and Raphael Lessard were running three wide. Lessard made contact with Moffit, and Ankrum had nowhere to go. After slamming into the wall hard, Ankrum’s truck erupted into flames. He was able to walk away uninjured, but his day is done.
