On lap 54 of the opening 100-lap Stage of Monday’s NASCAR Cup Series Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Christopher Bell spun from second-place.
The spin would have been a non-issue, had it not been for the No. 20 car sliding into the path of Kyle Larson and Ross Chastain who were coming at full speed.

The contact ended the day for Bell, one of the biggest favorites to win, as well as Chastain. Larson is soldiering on after repairs to his No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro.
Kevin Harvick, Chase Briscoe and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. also received minimal damage in the incident.
