Even though Cory Roper was walking away gingerly after a hard crash into the frontstretch wall with under 20 laps to go in Friday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Bucked Up 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, it was just nice to see him be able to walk away.
Tyler Hill was sent spinning to the inside of the track, where Roper was running. Roper had nowhere to go as Hill’s No. 56 Camping World machine clipped the rear of Roper, sending his No. 04 truck hard into the wall, driver’s side first.

Both drivers are done for the night. For Hill, this ends his 16-race streak with no DNF to start his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career.
