Man, you hate to see it for one of the dominant cars of the day in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Goodyear 400. But after capturing the Stage 2 win in the race, Chastain’s No. 1 Dale Earnhardt Jr. throwback Coca-Cola scheme ended up wrecked.
Chastain, who was controlling the field into turn 1, lost control of his car off the exit of turn 2 and went hard into the inside wall at lap 195.
Here is video of the crash:

Fortunately, Chastain walked away from the crash without injury, but his chances at capturing a third win on the season came to a skidding stop.
Denny Hamlin inherited the lead with Chastain crashing out.
