Sammy Smith locked up the 2021 ARCA Menards Series East championship by finishing second in Thursday night’s Bush’s Beans 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway. And his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Ty Gibbs won the race.

To celebrate, the duo performed a nose-to-nose burnout on the frontstretch.

Here is video of the pretty awesome moment at the end of Thursday’s race:

In winning, Gibbs now has 10 ARCA Menards Series wins this season and he holds a 26 point lead over Corey Heim with two races left in the main ARCA Menards Series championship season.

Chuck Buchanan went around near the mid-way point of the race after contact from the No. 46 car of Thad Moffitt.
