Well, well, well… It’s been a messy night at Bristol Motor Speedway for the NASCAR Cup Series Playoff contenders, and things didn’t get any easier on lap 276, when Daniel Suarez lost control of his No. 99 Chevrolet.
Suarez went around in front of a big field of cars on the backstretch. When all of the smoke settled, 10 cars were involved.
BIG WRECK ON THE RESTART!
