Noah Gragson Brutalized by Johanna Robbins After Ugly Wrecking Episode

Published 12/06/2021, 12:05 AM EST

In Saturday’s Snowflake 100 at the Five Flags Speedway, NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Noah Gragson caused a big crash that affected many. Among the ‘victims’ of Gragson’s ambitious move with 18 laps remaining, was Johanna Robbins, who spun straight into the wall. That one move by the JR Motorsports driver caused at least 10 more cars to pile up in the thick of it.

For this, Gragson received middle fingers from the pit crew members, as reported in Toby Christie.

But Robbins wasn’t going to let go of the incident with a birdie. She tore into Gragson in a post-race interview. A frustrated Robbins made it clear that an apology won’t fix the damage. “If he wants to come down here and pay for it, that’s great,” Robbins said.

“I see it as he doesn’t watch races here. I don’t see how he won the Snowball. You don’t go three wide. Especially into 1. You’re just going to tear up race cars.”

She admitted Saturday’s race result could’ve seen her finish inside the Top 5, maybe even a race win. She said, “I was finally seeing the front. I haven’t seen the front in a very long time. I had a really good race car and we could’ve finished in the top three tonight.” 

 

Johanna Robbins doesn’t understand how Noah Gragson is a full-time racer

The 29-year-old part-time race driver posted her very honest thoughts on Twitter. Seems like Robbins was having a hard time understanding how Gragson has a full-time seat in the second tier of NASCAR.

She wrote, How the hell does @NoahGragson even have a damn ride. What a POS.”

So, a helpful Twitter user pointed out to Robbins that it’s probably because Dale Earnhardt Jr. likes his driver despite his on-track and off-track incidents. But Robbins had a very blunt answer that probably makes her earlier tweet look like a rhetorical question.

“ITS CALLED HE HAS MONEY. And can afford to race at that level.”

Well, one wonders how Noah Gragson will reply or if he will reply to Robbin’s tweets and comments. But for now, we hope Robbins can fix her car and get back out on track.
