Pilot Brad Keselowski lost control before entering the mechanics

A pit stop on the race of the American NASCAR series on the superspeedway in Talladeg almost ended in a blockage: Ford Mustang brought Brad Keselowski right at the entrance to the pit lane.

“Catch” the heavy stock car he could not, but the rider Penske Racing was lucky: the car not only did not collide with any of the rivals, but rolled backwards right to the mechanics who were waiting for her. They were not taken aback, and did everything that was required – they refueled Ford, and changed the wheels.

The pit lane events were not limited to this: David Reagan (No. 38, Front Row Motorsports) mistakenly stopped by the mechanics of the neighboring team, and Eric Johnson (No. 20, Joe Gibbs Racing) literally pushed him with the front bumper of his Toyota. After that, Reagan backing back to his mechanics.

Chase Elliott won the race on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team Hendrick Motorsports. The oval track in Talladeg belongs to the so-called superspedues: it has a great length (4.28 kilometers), and very high speeds, which are achieved through profiled turns. The average speed of the winner was 259.637 kilometers per hour.
