As the dust settled, Corey LaJoie’s No. 7 Chevrolet Camaro defied physics. After flipping in mid-air, LaJoie miraculously landed back on all four tires against the wall. But the story didn’t end there. Carson Hocevar crashed into LaJoie, pushing him across the finish line in a jaw-dropping finish2. LaJoie finished 18th, while Hocevar secured 17th place.

Corey LaJoie credited his survival to a crucial decision. Just three laps before the crash, he tightened his seatbelt, preventing him from bouncing around too much during the chaotic collision. His calculated move paid off as he slid past the start/finish line in an unforgettable manner.
