NASCAR trucked 23, 500 cubic yards of grime into Bristol Motor Speedway so it could hold earlier this weekend’s inaugural dirt race at the fan-favorite half-mile track. The event was usually considered a success, but NASCAR and its competitors seem to be adjusting to the world of dirt monitor racing – as proved by this comedic video of a Chevy Silverado HD crashing into David Hunter Nemechek’s stricken competition truck while under extreme caution.

This particular clip is from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Collection Bristol dirt race, that was held just prior to the NASCAR Cup Series race upon Monday. John Hunter Nemechek had retired from the competition early on after he unique out, hit the outside wall structure and was hit simply by fellow competitor Derek Wellig. As Nemechek waited quietly of the track for their No . 4 Toyota Tundra to be cleared away, the Chevy Silverado HD assistance vehicle that was tending to the particular track began to slide throughout the surface toward the kitchen apron before striking Nemechek’s competition truck and pushing this into the inside retaining walls.
Nemechek’s Kyle Busch Motorsports team probably wasn’t happy with the driver of the Chevy HD right here, but this little influence ultimately wasn’t a very big-deal. Nemechek’s truck had currently incurred significant front-end harm after the impact with Wellig and it doesn’t look as if this mistake caused any extra harm. It also seems as if there was little the Chevy driver could do to prevent the impact once the tail began sliding down the monitor toward the apron.
The particular race was eventually received by Martin Truex Junior., who beat Truck Collection regular Ben Rhodes towards the finish by a little over the second. Truex led 105 of 150 laps to the victory, which was their first at Bristol given that 2006.
