Well, that didn’t take long. Nashville Superspeedway has not been kind to NASCAR drivers all weekend long, and on Lap 1 of Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Tennessee Lottery 250, things got wild.
Kyle Sieg, who started from the ninth position, got loose while running in the low lane in Turn 2. Sieg was unable to wrangle the car before he made contact with Jeb Burton on the outside.
After those two made contact, the chaos was on. When all was said and done, five cars were involved in the crash including Justin Allgaier, Ryan Sieg and Stefan Parsons, who took a hard head-on shot into the outside wall.

It appeared the two Sieg brothers drove away with the least damage of anyone involved in the crash. Burton had slight contact with the right rear of his car into the outside wall, while Allgaier suffered a good amount of damage, and Parsons was done for the day with his massive damage.
