Video: Shane van Gisbergen Done for Day After Crash in Rain with Chase Briscoe

Shane van Gisbergen will not remain perfect at the Chicago Street Course, as his race came to an end on Lap 25 of Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Grant Park 165. The New Zealander will finish dead-last in 39th after a hard crash on Lap 25.

SVG’s crash came as he was running fifth in rainy conditions, and it was due to a loss of control by Chase Briscoe, who was running seventh at the time. Briscoe skidded as he approached Turn 6, and with him being unable to slow down, he barely clipped the rear of SVG’s car.

As Briscoe spun driver’s side door first into the tire barrier in Turn 6, SVG’s car lost control and pounded the concrete barrier, which caused race-ending suspension damage to his No. 16 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

Here is another clip of the crash, slowed down so you can better see the contact between Briscoe and SVG, which led to the end of SVG’s race:

SVG would climb from the car, which would officially signal the end of his day in Sunday’s race. The driver had led nine laps in the race prior to the race-ending crash, which SVG called “gutting.”

“I don’t know. I just sort of turned in. It looked pretty good, then I just got smashed by someone — 14 you said. Gutting,” van Gisbergen anguished. “The Wendy’s Saucy Nuggs Camaro was really good. We were in the lead for a lot of that race. It felt good taking off in the rain.”

After getting a chance to watch the replay of the incident, SVG said there was simply nothing he could do to survive the crash.

“That sucks,” van Gisbergen explained. “It’s an unfortunate mistake by [Briscoe], I’m sure he didn’t mean it. But when he clipped me, there was nothing I could do.”
