Yikes, Ryan Blaney was hoping to have a fun night of racing with his dad Dave Blaney at Sharon Speedway, but now he’ll have to hope that the SRX mechanics can make enough repairs to his No. 12 machine for him to keep running.
On lap 2 of Heat 1 of Saturday’s SRX season finale, Paul Tracy made contact with Michael Waltrip, while battling for second place. This sent Tracy spinning. Blaney had nowhere to go and after Blaney was involved, Chase Elliott, Matt Kenseth and Tony Kanaan were involved as well.
Kanaan slammed head-on into Blaney, which appeared to knock oil lines off the car and potentially damaged the radiator.
Here is the crash that shortened Blaney’s Heat 1 at Sharon Speedway:
