On Lap 123 of Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Quaker State 400 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, we saw the Mini-Big One break out when Erik Jones and Corey LaJoie made contact in Turn 2.
The contact between the two drivers sent LaJoie spinning through the field, and he collected numerous cars in the process including Ty Gibbs and Ross Chastain, who had his car leap into the air.

LaJoie, who had struggled early in the race, had moved to inside the top-10 at the time of the incident.
In all, seven cars were involved in this crash.
Those involved included LaJoie, Jones, Martin Truex Jr., Ty Gibbs, Ross Chastain, Tyler Reddick, and Todd Gilliland.
