Well… It didn’t take long for chaos to erupt into Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series B&L Transport 170 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, as Noah Gragson’s No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado will exit the race before the completion of the first lap, due to extensive damage sustained exiting the first corner of the race.
It all started when Jeb Burton – running inside the top-five — went wide off the first corner, kicking up a large cloud of dust and reducing visibility for the competitors behind. Gragson’s No. 9 got into the grass and tore the front end off, effectively ending his day before it even began.
Cody Ware – piloting the SS Greenlight Racing | Rick Ware Racing No. 17 — spun in the fluid and oil that was put down by Gragson’s tore up car.
