NASCAR driver climbs the fence then opens beer with his teeth at Martinsville Speedway
Noah Gragson entered Martinsville Speedway in a must win situation. He was one of the 8 drivers battling for four playoff spots next week. However, he was far enough below the cutline that he needed a win to advance into the championship round.
The 23-year-old called his shot before the race. He said he’d go to victory lane and he did.
Gragson worked the outside lane for most of stage three. Restart after restart, Gragson couldn’t take the lead away on the outside lane.
However, a restart in NASCAR overtime brought the tension. It was expected that Gragson would pick the inside lane, behind race leader Daniel Hemric after multiple missed opportunities to grab the lead from the outside. But, he didn’t.
