Overtime Collison Ends Chastain’s Bid for Victory in Nashville

Moose Fraternity driver Ross Chastain went from a chance to win last Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Nashville Superspeedway to wrecked in the event’s first attempt at overtime. Chastain led for 45 laps and appeared ready to battle for victory in the ALLY 400, but as he was racing with leader Denny Hamlin, contact from Kyle Larson sent the No. 1 Chevrolet hard into the wall, ending his race.

The NASCAR Cup Series returns to the streets of Chicago on Sunday, July 7th for the second running of the Chicago Street Race. Last year’s event was the first-ever NASCAR Cup Series street race in the sport’s 75-year history. While successful, the first attempt at a race in downtown Chicago was saddled with rain from the start, with Chastain finishing 22nd and teammate Shane Van Gisbergen taking the checkered flag. Chastain vows to be more prepared in 2024, “The streets up there will have changed and we’re all honest with each other that the race simulator is a tool. At least I’ll have that to go off of though. Last year, I’ll be honest, I didn’t put enough stock in the simulator prep, but this year I definitely have.”

Members can watch the race this Sunday, July 7 at 4:30PM ET on NBC.
