Paulie Harraka Wrecked Before The Race Even Started

Paulie Harraka made his Sprint Cup debut on Sunday in Sonoma. It didn’t go well.

As he was making his way off pit road to start the pace laps, Harraka rear ended Alex Kennedy (who was also making his first Sprint Cup start).

Let us repeat that. He was making his way off pit road to start the pace laps. He crashed BEFORE the green flag even dropped.

The two returned to the garage for repairs. Harraka would complete 89 laps and finish 39th.

Hang in there, Paulie. Things can only get better from here.
