On Saturday, the NASCAR Xfinity Series unloaded at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The 1.5-mile track hosted the division in Homestead, Florida.
Watch the Noah Gragson crash video below.
Gragson started deep in the field. He climbed to finish 3rd in stage two.
In stage three, Gragson surfaced as the car to beat. Gragson led 34 laps and was cruising to what would have been his third career win.
With 3 laps to go, Noah Gragson was leading by 9 seconds and heading to victory. Second later, he was in the wall and on fire.
The lap car of David Starr blew a tire ahead of him. Starr went from the bottom lane, all the way to the outside wall. He then stuck to the outside wall.
Gragson was glued to the outside lane. That was his lane of choice, all night. He quickly approached the lap car and couldn’t avoid contact.
Gragson drove into the rear bumper of Starr and totaled his machine. Gragson was out of the race, the caution setup an overtime finish.
Myatt Snider went on to claim his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series win.
Noah Gragson comments after the crash
After the crash, Gragson gave a wave to the crowd before taking a trip to the infield medical center. Moments later, he was checked and released.
“What are you going to do. You got dipshits in the way, every single week,” Gragson told Fox Sports after the crash.
“It’s a shame. We’ve dominated the last three races, including this race. And, we’ve had stuff happen like that.”
“I think I’m going to go to Bass Pro Shops, go to the lobby and decompress. De-stress myself out and maybe look at the fish tank there at Bass Pro.”
“Definitely a bummer, they know who won this race, based off speed. The last three times we’ve been here.”
“It’s unfortunate. But, there’s only one single left that we know how to do and that’s rebound, keep our heads up and be thankful for the opportunity.”
“I had dreamed about racing Tyler Reddick on the top side. I was saving fuel, half throttle the last 30 laps and we were still pulling away.”
Gragson concluded, “If you’re in Miami, lets go meet up at Bass Pro Shops.”
