Wallace’s car got out of shape, and as he attempted to corral the car up the hill, Joey Logano was attempting to squeeze by for position. Logano couldn’t quite get past Wallace in time, as Wallace caught the left rear of Logano’s car.

The impact caused Wallace to go spinning. Here is a video of the incident:

In addition to Wallace’s issues, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. also suffered a pit road speeding penalty, Ross Chastain overshot his pit stall, and Christopher Bell tagged the wall hard toward the end of Stage 1.

It was a rough Stage 1 for the Playoff contenders, well, except for Denny Hamlin, who scored the Stage 1 win.
