A multi-auto collision off Turn 3 finished with Burton sliding on his rooftop down the front stretch, yet he left the destruction unharmed
Jeb Burton was unharmed after an unnerving accident in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Pocono Raceway, one in which Burton got gathered in a multi-auto collision off Turn 3 and was sent off topsy turvy.
On a Lap 46 restart, Santino Ferucci got sideways and turned before traffic left Turn 3, hurling a huge measure of smoke before the field and gathering Ricky Stenhouse Jr. all the while. As Stenhouse and Ferucci’s vehicles turned to within the track, approaching vehicles spread around the finish of the pit wall attempting to keep away from the disaster area.
As Burton endeavored to drive past, he ran out of space between Stenhouse’s vehicle and within wall, hitting Stenhouse’s vehicle just so it sent off his vehicle very high. Burton’s vehicle continued to slide topsy turvy for a few feet prior to stopping.
Burton was safe and immediately moved out of his vehicle after it was hindered onto its wheels by the AMR Safety Team.
Burton, the child of previous Daytona 500 and Southern 500 victor Ward Burton, has had a lopsided 2022 season since moving from Kaulig Racing to Our Motorsports. In the wake of getting his most memorable vocation to succeed at Talladega and completing tenth in the title standings with seven top fives and 16 top 10s in 2021, Burton has not scored a solitary top 10 up to this point this season – – his best completion is an eleventh spot run at Richmond, and he entered Saturday’s race seventeenth in focuses.
In the wake of leaving the infield care focus, Burton bemoaned destroying a vehicle for the second week straight in a meeting with NBC Sports. Burton was associated with another hard multi-fender bender last week at New Hampshire, in which he wound up driving under Ryan Sieg’s vehicle.
Burton is the fifth driver to go topsy turvy in a race across NASCAR’s three public visiting series this season. Harrison Burton and Chris Buescher have both been on their rooftop in the Cup Series, while Burton joins Myatt Snider among Xfinity drivers who have gone on their cover. In the Camping World Truck Series, Jessica Friesen went for a short tumble last month during a race at Knoxville.
