It had been a wild, yet clean race through the opening 2 Stages of Sunday’s Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. However, on the restart at the beginning of Stage 3, 2020 NASCAR Cup Series champion Chase Elliott lost control of his car on the exit of turn two and spun.
On his way down the track, Elliott clipped Kurt Busch causing damage to his front end.

Elliott, who had run well all day and was in the top-10 at the time of the incident, will look to rebound with repairs to his No. 9 machine.
