NASCAR driver Justin Allgaier takes hard hit into wall during Xfinity Series’ Talladega race

NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Justin Allgaier took a hard hit in Saturday’s Ag-Pro 300 at Talladega Superspeedway.

In Stage 1, Allgaier was fighting in the top five as the pack exited Turn 2. As he came down in front of Riley Herbst, he got loose and was sent spinning down the backstretch. Allgaier tried to get the car back around, but it was too late. He headed right for the wall and hit it hard.

He explained what happened to Fox Sports.

“I hate it for everybody, you know, dash for cash. Obviously, really important race for us, nothing to show, no stage points or anything,” he added. “So, I hate it, I hate it for everybody back in the shop.”
