Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Ambetter 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway has gotten off to an eventful start, with four different drivers exiting the event before the 10th lap was even completed, after a five-car accident.
The accident started with major contact between Justin Haley and Ty Dillon on the exit of turn two, which sent the Petty GMS Motorsports driver back across the track, in front of the pack.

Alex Bowman, Josh Bilicki, and BJ McLeod, all drivers that started outside of the top-25 in Sunday’s event, were involved in the accident, sustaining major damage, forcing all three drivers to join Ty Dillon in the garage.
Justin Haley, despite contact to the right-rear of his Kaulig Racing machine, would be able to continue on in the event, without having to make a pit stop.
