On a restart on Lap 224 of Sunday’s Kobalt 400, the field got a little too aggressive, jockeying for position with the race on the line and heavy winds at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
After the green came out, it appeared that Ryan Blaney took the air off Matt Kenseth in Turn 1, sending the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota spinning and into the wall, where he collided with rookie Chase Elliott. Kurt Busch and Carl Edwards made contact as well.
It was third straight frustrating run for Kenseth, who has been fast all year, but as been unable to translate that speed into a race victory.
"I just turned off in there and it just spun out before I knew what happened," said Kenseth.
"I’m just disappointed," added Elliott. "What a fast race car."
