The long, tiring and exhausting start of NASCAR’s round 12 race at Texas



FORT WORTH Texas (AP) FORT WORTH, Texas (AP)The racer Chase Elliott was leading at Texas when a rear tire problem led to an intense collision with the wall. It was an explosive end to his race, and he was knocked off the top spot in the standings for playoffs.

The caution lights were turned on , a front-running car had issues with its tires, and Denny Hamlin went off into the infield grass following a retaliatory hit from behind from another playoff contender, William Byron NASCAR didn’t initially recognize — or penalize until.

And Christopher Bell, who, like his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Hamlin was so impressive in the opening round of playoffs, did not finish the track he has been racing at since his team ran out of time to repair the car that was damaged after another tire issue led to him hitting the wall.

Despite the concerns that competing teams have already voiced regarding Talladega Superspeedway and the Roval at Charlotte Motor Speedway in this three-race playoff segment, The 334 laps that took place at the 1/2 mile Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday was a turbulent start in the race of 12.

“Just a crazy race for everybody,” said race winner Joey Logano, who took the lead in points.

All the tire issues resulted in a track record of 16 cautions (for the 91 laps), including 12 of which were in single-car crashes and regular yellows at the end of both race stages. Also, an official red flag lasted for 56 minutes due to lightning and 36 lead change among 19 drivers.

During the final laps, Logano was worried about the noise in the rear right of his car. He was 1.19 seconds ahead of Tyler Reddick, whose win for Richard Childress Racing came a week after being eliminated from contention for the title when the field for playoffs was reduced between 12 and 16 drivers.

Four playoff races thus yet have been taken by a player who is in the running to compete for the title.

Even Reddick thought about it in the final laps, concerned about tire problems with three different drivers with issues with tires: “Probably about 50% of my brain was thinking about that,” the driver declared.

The caution was issued shortly after. Due to Martin Truex’s spinout from the leader on lap 26, Hamlin had difficulty navigating through the track following Byron’s brutal hit from behind. After racing, Byron acknowledged that he was intentionally at fault, angry about being pushed into the wall Hamlin in green-flag laps while they were just a few seconds ahead of the leader.

“He took me away from the room. … The two of us are fortunate we got through,” Byron said. “I decided to express my disgust. I wasn’t planning to kick him or spin him around.’

Hamlin stayed alongside Byron throughout the warning and was furious at his position in the race. Because he could not keep up with Byron after he slipped through the grass, Hamlin returned about 10 rows away from the front.

“I suppose we can be reckless and wreck each other. He tried wrecking me,” Hamlin said. “Yeah, I don’t think we even touched. I had to take a look. I don’t believe we were even close. He sent us to the field under the cautionary note.”

Scott Miller, NASCAR’s senior vice president of competition, claimed that officials couldn’t have seen the incident at the moment and were focused on the cause of the caution. He admitted that Hamlin could have remained in his place and Byron could have been moved to the side of the track. Penalties could still be a possibility in the event of a review.

Hamlin quickly posted an angry tweet about his displeasure over that.

Elliott was leading just over the halfway point when he slammed into the wall. When he stepped onto the front stretch, the flames could be seen quickly from under the right-hand part of the No. 9 Chevrolet. He eventually came to a halt near the field and climbed out without injury while the flames surrounded the car. He was 32nd.

Goodyear and NASCAR officials have said that there were teams that didn’t suffer from tire problems. Miller stated that the teams showed that they are more conservative in their tension in addition to being “closer to the suggested minimums” recommended by the tire maker.
