The accident started with a three-wide pass for a spot outside the top-10, with Erik Jones, Michael McDowell, and Chase Briscoe racing in close-quarters exiting turn four. Briscoe, slid into the outside wall, collecting his No. 14 and making contact with Daniel Suarez.
Suarez’s right-rear was hit by Briscoe, sending the CommScope machine into the outside wall, causing heavy damage to the Trackhouse Racing machine.
