In what feels like the 400th flat left rear tire of the day in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway, Chase Elliott went for probably one of the wildest rides we’ve seen so far this weekend.
No, he didn’t destroy his race car, but the No. 9 UniFirst machine whipped around so fast, that it appeared an actual wheel flew off the car. As Elliott popped down to the apron of the track, it looked like his car was going to potentially go airborne as well.
Luckily, the No. 9 stayed grounded and when the car came to a stop, it was apparent that another left rear tire had went down.
ELLIOTT LOSES A TIRE!
