A multi-car pile-up brought out the red flag in stage two during Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Dover International Speedway.
It was early in stage two at Dover that spins involving Jesse Little, Matt Jaskol, and Josh Williams ended in a multi-car wreck. The NASCAR On Fox official Twitter page tweeted a video of the huge crash shortly after it happened.
“There goes Jesse Little spinning, and Josh Williams spins to the outside,” one announcer says. “And then here comes [Matt] Jaskol in the 13 and just so much momentum gets him on top of the 78.”
“And that’s where if you get just a little bit of a tap from behind you’re gone at this track,” the other announcer chimes in. “It is so hard to be able to steer it and save it. One car spinning to the inside, one car spinning to the outside, and I believe Jaskol was trying to check up and gets hit. And that’s where this moment here happened.”
