Watkins Glen Race Update – Wreck On Last Lap
One wreck on the last lap caused two different driver altercations!
If you missed the race this weekend, never fear, I have the best part all cued up for you. Well one of them. The last few laps of this race were great. So many restarts caused so many position changes. Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch were one and two, then they took each other so wide on turn one they were out. Them Hamlin and Truex Jr. come out of nowhere to take over the top two spots which is where my favorite part begins!
While I’m impartial at this point, Jimmie Johnson is out, I like both these guys, but I love a Truex Jr. win. Then it happens. Keselowski hits Truex Jr. from behind and wrecks him taking other drivers with him. Turex Jr. even mentioned the mentality of Keselowski is that is doesn’t matter where or if we finish! Keselowski did take the blame and apologize to Truex Jr. Instead of second, Truex Jr. finished seventh.
That wreck brings up to altercation #2 – While fighting to take Truex Jr. spot, Allmendinger takes Larson, who has been in the top five all day, out of the race. Larson expressed his anger saying although hes aggressive, he just dumped him. Instead of a to 5 finish, Larson was 29th.
Denny Hamlin went on to win the race, his first road race win, showing us how fun a burn out can be! Take a look:
