NASCAR Xfinity Series driver, Anthony Alfredo, recently posted a head-scratching apologetic tweet regarding a highway accident that took place on the I-55 Highway. Upon taking a closer look, fans realized that the accident had nothing to do with Alfredo but rather his name.

Alfredo retweeted a video of a highway hauler crash that apparently spilled Alfredo sauce all over the road. In the captions, he went on to state, My hauler driver and I are very sorry for the inconvenience everybody.

The Our Motorsports driver cracked a pun on his surname, matching the spelling for the white Italian pasta sauce.

When fans saw this on Twitter they were left confused initially, thinking it may have been an accident involving the Xfinity Series driver.

However, when they realized the joke, they soon hopped on board and started cracking jokes on Anthony Alfredo themselves.

At the end of it all, the crash turned into a hilarious dig at Anthony’s own name since it resembled that of the Italian pasta sauce, even more so no Alfredo’s were hurt, other than a lot of sauce being spilled over, triggering a massive cleanup for the road maintenance workers.
