If you think carefully, you may be able to remember a caution flag late in Sunday’s Bank of America ROVAL 400 on Sunday, where NASCAR was forced to add an additional lap of caution, before getting back to the green flag. The NASCAR on NBC broadcast didn’t mention the reason why a lap was added but rather continued on with their conversation.
Shortly thereafter, NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Noah Gragson Tweeted: “Anyone just see that fan hop the fence and run on track in turn 7.” While there were some reports of a fan being on track while the race was under caution, there was no video or photo evidence captured of the moment… or at least we thought.
On Tuesday, @Dustdevil386 posted a video of a TikTok (uploaded by @dpwildn) that shows the fan making his way onto the racing surface under caution, being chased by a safety truck, before attempting to hop back over the fence. While he made it over the fence, he was successful in getting his daily serving of dirt, doing a faceplant into the ground on the other side of the fence.

The TikTok video has since been deleted.
