Joey Gase, driver of the No. 15 Rick Ware Racing machine, is being transported to a local hospital after a hard crash on lap 91 of Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
In the freighting crash, the left rear tire on Gase’s No. 15 machine flew off. This sent Gase spinning around, causing his car to pound the outside wall with the driver’s side of his car. The impact was so severe that the car got airborne.
