NASCAR Results in Indianapolis: AJ Allmendinger Wins Chaotic Race Filled with Brickyard Collisions


NASCAR’s first intrusion into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was a chaotic crash filled with collisions that resulted in several warnings and two states marked with a red sign as NASCAR tried not only to clear cars off the track but also to remove obstacles that proved too problematic for drivers.

Nowhere was this more evident than at the 6th turn, where drivers had problems with the curb and speeding all day. Several drivers came out at the turn, but this did not result in significant delays until lap 78, where approximately 10 cars crashed or spun in some form. The race went straight into overtime after the conditions for the red were lifted, but the remaining drivers could not pass one lap before the turn before more collisions ensued. This resulted in the second and last red flag of the day.

In the second overtime attempt, the top four runners were Denny Hamlin, NASCAR Cup rookie Chase Briscoe, AJ Allmendinger and Matt DiBenedetto, none of whom have won this season. It looked like Hamlin, who had been consistent all year, would finally get that elusive first win, but Briscoe, who had just been sentenced for crossing the track, took it out on the penultimate lap.

Allmendinger, the driver of the Xfinity series who only rides the road tracks in the Cup series, also took the opportunity in only his fourth race this year on the road to victory. Moreover, Hamlin lost the lead in the regular season as Kyle Larson scored 22 points on Sunday.

Good news for Hamlin and bubble drivers Kevin Harwick and Tyler Reddick: Since Allmendinger is the Xfinity driver, he is not eligible for a playoff spot. So, if he was to be the new first winner this season, there was no better driver for that trio than the driver of car number 16. Despite his unfortunate ending, Hamlin also locked himself in the playoffs, although he has a significant distance to compensate in terms of play points – ofa.

NASCAR in Indianapolis live updates, summaries from the brickyard

(All times east)

17:03: Final: Allmendinger wins! Your last 10 best:

  1. AJ Allmendinger
  2. Ryan Blaney
  3. Kyle Larson
  4. Chase Elliot
  5. Matt DiBenedetto
  6. Kurt Busch
  7. Erik Jones
  8. Justin Haley
  9. Austin Cindric
  10. Ryan Newman

17:02: Briscoe pulls out Hamlin! Car accident no. 11. Allmendinger leads in the last round!

17:01: They passed 6.

17:00: Aand here we are again. Briscoe went into the grass, but just behind Hamlin in second place.

16:54: Hamlin still leads, but three drivers directly behind him – Briscoe, AJ Allmendinger and DiBenedetto – are without a win this season. These are your four best drivers without a win this year and a place in the playoffs. Larson dropped to seventh place.

16:53: Reddick is out without a hood.

16:49: Terms terminated. Back to regular warning.

16:45: Red flag again. Will the unevenness at the 6th turn be solved even now?

16:41: Caution 6 (overtime). Can you believe it? Another accident on the 6th turn. Dillon, Custer and McDowell cars are pretty damaged.

16:40: Hamlin separates from the pack early.

16:39: They’re back! There are two rounds left.

16:15: No more curbs at the 6th turn.

16:14: Question now: Can Hamlin keep Larson for the first win of the season? They are currently running 1-2.

16:13: This is in the lap before the fall: LaJoie flew into the air.

16:11: Let’s go to overtime!

16:08: Conditions for the red flag have improved. There are five rounds left.

16:01 pm: NASCAR is also working on a sod and barrier near where Logano crashed.

15:55: Judging by the video review … it seems that 10 cars were involved in the collision, although not all of them were damaged – some just escaped. Harvick, for example, is still on the track, but a piece of someone’s car is stuck in the left side of his car:

15:49: The road is now closed under red flag conditions, while NASCAR is clearing the carnage. There is again great damage on the 6th.

15:44: Caution 5 (78 laps). NASCAR will not take a risk on this issue. Ryan Preece also has a lot of damage and is on the grass.

15:43: Hamlin and Briscoe are fighting for the lead … and a few cars come out on the 6th turn! The cars of Logan, Byron and Daniel Suarez were destroyed. Byron reported hitting the curb, which went down the path.

15:42: More rubble on the track at the 6th turn, and Truex stands out from the track. Another six-lap warning to the end?

15:41: Hamlin will try to keep the field with the remaining seven laps. Larson (fifth) and Elliott (16th) will most likely take the lead from them.

15:38: Hamlin and Kurt Busch remain on the track while boxing is available. I’m trying to take some positions.

15:31: Caution 4 (72nd round). It looks like debris on the 6th turn.

15:29: Larson is your leader with only 10 laps to go. Elliott is his closest runner, 4 seconds behind his teammate.

15:05: Hamlin needs to take better care of the lead if he wants to come to this victory.

15:02: There are many eight best drivers, except Hamlin. He passed by the crowd and is now leading.

14:58: Larson now commands more than 3 seconds over second-placed Byron, though he hasn’t fought since the 33rd lap. There are many opportunities to change the lead with the remaining 30 laps.

14:57: Briscoe is on the route after minor damage appeared to have occurred on his car. He also gets some new tires.

14:44: And there’s a restart in Round 44. There are only 39 laps left.

14:41: So That’s it what they needed to get out from under the curb:

14:36: Almirola is working on her car.

14:35: Caution 3 (lap 43). The caution flag appears to have been turned off, but not because of car problems; they must repair the curb where the problem occurred.

14:34: Two cars flew off near the back of the field, but without caution. Almirola and Stenhouse seem to have been at the center of it.

14:33: Larson and Elliott are your leaders entering the final phase. They finished first and second in Watkins Glen last week.

14:24: Reddick may have won the stage, but look at that battle between Elliott and Larson:

14:20: Caution 2 (35th round). And there’s another stage win for Reddick, who keeps Dillon for the second day and third of the season. Your top 10:

  1. Tyler Reddick
  2. Austin Dillon
  3. Ryan Preece
  4. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
  5. Matt DiBenedetto
  6. Justin Haley
  7. Corey Lajoie
  8. Andy Lally
  9. Kyle Larson
  10. Chase Elliott

14:18: Reddick and Dillon, both need points, battling for first place with only two rounds left in the stage. Remember, Dillon is 15 points behind his teammate for last place in the playoffs (assuming there are no new winners playing for the first time).

14:16: Lots of pits with a green flag, including each of the first six. Reddick is still out and could win the second stage of the day.

14:06: Uh oh. Keselowski hits the wall. Elliott is now the leader. Soon after, Joey Logano pulled away and lost a significant position.

14:02: Kurt Busch enters the pit road to pick up four fresh tires after getting on the front right tire. That will cost him some positions.

14:01: Christopher Bell and Matt DiBenedetto fight and end up in the grass. Again, without caution.

13:59: Now Elliott has the advantage. It looks like there will be several leadership changes with big battles all over the field.

13:57: Byron lost six seats after turning too fast and getting off the track. He is still among the top 10, in 8th place.

13:55: Keselowski is in the back, with Byron, Elliott, Joey Logano and Kyle Larson behind him in the top five.

13:42: Caution 1 (15th round). Reddick gets a stage win — just the second of the season — and some much-needed points. Your top 10:

  1. Tyler Reddick
  2. Michael McDowell
  3. Austin Dillon
  4. Erik Jones
  5. Ryan Preece
  6. Brad Keselowski
  7. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
  8. Justin Haley
  9. Chase Briscoe
  10. Chase Elliott

13:41: Reddick overtook McDowell in lap 14 and must keep him to win the stage. (Remember, McDowell started the season with a win in Daytona).

13:40: Now McDowell and Reddick are fighting for the lead; Reddick needs those points.

13:39 pm: Many people fight under the green, including each of the six best drivers. Only two rounds remain in the phase.

13:32: And now Aric Almirola is in the pit; he appears to have suffered some damage to the front right side of his vehicle after contact with Corey LaJoie. Gets new tires.

13:30: Uh oh. Austin Cindric lost traction when turning and turned (without caution). His rear wheels seem to be locked. In any case, it lost its significant position.

13:25: Martin Truex Jr. opposed what is described on NBC television as rubbing the front right tire.

13:23: Chase Briscoe overtook William Byron – who had the poll – for the lead in Round 3.

13:19: And there is the green flag! Here’s a field, two by two, down the line.

13:06: The most famous words in NASCAR:

12:54 PM: Let us remind you that today’s race ends the stage in the 15th, 35th and 82nd laps.

12:38 pm: Hamlin will probably cheer for Chase Elliott in his last away game of the season:

12:36 pm: The tension is palpable.
