NASCAR Driver In Car Crash After Leaving Track

Nearly immediately after getting off the track this weekend, this NASCAR star got involved in a car accident as he and his team attempted to leave the racetrack.

After crossing the finish line and dominating during this weekend’s Xfinity Series race in Fontana, California, 24-year-old Kyle Larson took a massive sweep at the Auto Club 400 and topped off a great weekend.

Sadly, following the massive celebration for him and his team, the champagne toasts, and incredible adrenaline-pumping thrill of taking home the trophy, there was a bump in the road ahead after the young driver exited victory lane.

In a weird turn of events, and according to a tweet from Larson himself, he and several members of his team were leaving the Auto Club Speedway when they were involved in a car accident. Thankfully, nobody was hurt during the incident and from other reports of the accident, it sounds like it was a simple fender bender.

What a weird world for these drivers to live in where they can run at more than 200 mph on a track for hours on end with no incident, but once they enter the public roadway – they get into an accident!

We are thankful everyone was okay and their car sponsor, Team Chevy, made sure everyone was safe.

Watch the video below of his killer finish during this weekend’s Auto Club 400 at Fontana.
