And here is a replay of the crash from another angle:

When all of the dust settled, there were 11 cars with crinkled body work. Those involved in the crash included Sam Mayer, Blaine Perkins, Sheldon Creed, Brennan Poole, Brandon Jones, Kyle Weatherman, Ryan Sieg, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Anthony Alfredo, Josh Williams and Riley Herbst.

Herbst was the Stage 1 winner, and Creed won Stage 2 in Saturday’s race. Neither driver will go on to score the race win in the Alsco Uniforms 250 at Atlanta.
