Fort Worth, Texas – Kyle Bush was knocked out of the NASCAR all-star race when his car was knocked down by Ross Chastain when he slowed down in front of Texas.

Bush was a polester and led all but one, the first 48 laps before the crash.

Bush’s car moved out of the fourth turn due to a flat rear right tire, and the winner of the 2017 All-Star Race was moving on the track and slowed when he was hit by Chastain, who was driving at about 185 miles per hour. The tough contact sent Chastain to Chase Eliot, which also ended the night of the 2020 All-Star Game winners.

“I felt that the driver of the 1st car had chosen the wrong lane,” Chastain said when asked about the collision and referred to his car number.

It came just a few laps in the second leg after Kyle Larson, who won his previous two All-Star starts (2019 and 2021), broke out in the fourth turn and crashed into a wall before slipping through a grassy stretch. Larson did not change the tires, and the right front tire went down.


“It was great, but I’m fine,” Larson said of the beatings from outside.

Bush led all 25 laps in the first stage without precaution after starting from the pole. The 2017 All-Star winner was in a good position to stay in front of the field at the start of the fourth and final segment of the race – a 50-lap race to the $ 1 million prize. But the crash ended that chance.

Austin Sindrick was first at the end of the second segment. Ryan Blaney was second, as was the end of the first stage after the start of the race.

The All-Star Race took place after a concert by superstar country musician Blake Shelton on the backyard after an open race with 16 cars to help complete the field for the main event.

Ricky Stanhouse Jr., a Texas native James Buscher and Daniel Suarez, took part in the All-Star Race in the open qualifiers earlier Sunday. Eric Jones, in car № 43 for Petty GMS Motorsports, got the final spot in the field with 24 cars according to a fan vote.


Stanhouse and Buscher won the first two stages of 20 laps in the qualifying race earlier Sunday. Suarez finished ahead in the final 10-round shooting, the third time the Mexican rider performed at the All-Star Game.

Along with Shelton’s concert before the race were several athletes from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including Hall of Fame receiver Drew Pearson, who played for the Dallas Cowboys, three-time middleweight champion Erol Spence Jr. and former Dallas Stars goalkeeper Marty Turco. .

Shelton participated in a performance of drivers entering the stage through a large cabin door on a huge facade and then instructing drivers to start the engines.

At the start of Sunday’s All-Star race on Sunday, Stanhouse was pushed to the front row after pole winner Tyler Reddick was forced to head to the back of the field with 16 cars due to unapproved changes after qualifying Saturday. Radish was until the fifth to the end of the first stage, but crashed in the last leg when he escaped and entered the wall.


Texas is the fourth track to host the annual show, but only the second, where the All-Star Race has been held several times. The first All-Star Race was held in Charlotte in 1985, and Atlanta hosted in 1985 up to 33 in a row in Charlotte. The race was moved to Bristol in 2020, when North Carolina did not allow spectators due to COVID-19 restrictions.
