NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, a multi-truck collision unfolded, leaving fans and drivers alike in shock. Let’s delve into the details of this intense crash that involved Tyler Ankrum, Thad Moffitt, Keith McGee, and Jeffrey Earnhardt.

On lap 68, Tyler Ankrum lost control of his #18 truck and slammed hard into the outside wall, impacting his front bumper. Thad Moffitt, with no chance to avoid the collision, hit Ankrum’s truck from the right side, leading to a significant crash. This incident triggered the third caution of the day and involved two other drivers on the track. As Moffitt’s truck careened inside, it collided with Keith McGee and Jeffrey Earnhardt, resulting in a series of hard hits that underscored the severity of the crash. The chaotic scene brought the race to a halt as safety crews rushed to assist the drivers and clear the debris.
