A tire on the No. 16 of Ryan Reed went down, and his loss of control set off a chain-reaction of events that led to Jordan Anderson’s car setting ablaze.


Reed lost control as he was trying to get to pit road for a tire change with just a little too much speed, causing him to lose control and go sideways on track. Behind him, the No. 51 of Jeremy Clements had an extremely gnarly collision with the No. 46 of Jordan Anderson.


Anderson’s car burst into flames, but fortunately it seemed to stay under the hood while he was able to calmly climb out the window to safety. The race was briefly red flagged while the crash was cleaned up, but has since resumed.

Fortunately, no one appears to be hurt—unless you count Anderson’s car. That car is toast. Actual, real, charred toast.
