Video: Smithley, Ty Dillon Spark 11-Car Collision With 90 Laps to Go at Atlanta

Garrett Smithley’s car slowed up from the 12th position with 90 laps left in the NASCAR Cup race at Atlanta, which triggered an 11-car pileup.

Oh my goodness. The third multi-car accident of the NASCAR Cup Series Quaker State 400 at Atlanta Motor Speedway transpired with under 100 laps to go in Sunday’s race. The latest incident was sparked when Garrett Smithley, running 12th at the time, got extremely loose and slowed significantly in front of Ty Dillon.

Dillon had nowhere to go and made contact with Smithley, which spun Smithley and the contact between the two served as the catalyst for an 11-car melee.
