Unfortunately, Moffitt’s trajectory led him back down the track, where he collided with Tyler Ankrum. The impact was significant, and both drivers were unable to continue.

Additionally, Memphis Villarreal was also caught up in the crash, further complicating the situation. In the end, the race itself was dominated by Kyle Busch, who secured victory after sweeping both stages.
