Chase Briscoe seemingly had Sunday’s Ruoff Mortgage 500 at Phoenix Raceway won, but with nine laps to go, the driver of the No. 9 car — Chase Elliott — went for a spin on the backstretch to bring out the caution.
Elliott fortunately avoided damage, but he did fall outside the top-10.
ELLIOTT SPINS WITH 9 TO GO!
Not the caution @ChaseBriscoe_14 wanted to see.

While Elliott was fortunate to avoid damage, Briscoe was also fortunate that his No. 14 car stayed good and he was able to hold on for his first-career NASCAR Cup Series win.
