The green flag was out at Darlington Raceway on Sunday evening to stamp the arrival of the NASCAR race. However, it didn’t remain for long.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. stood by over two months to get back on the track, however, his arrival endured about a mile. Stenhouse Jr., driver of the No. 47 Chevrolet Camaro for JTG Daugherty Racing collided with the divider on the absolute first lap of the Real Heroes 400 NASCAR race at Darlington Raceway on Sunday.
Darlington’s 1.366-mile track is testing, grating, and nicknamed “Too Tough To tame.” It appeared to be likely that corroded drivers may require a moment to get accustomed to their vehicles, particularly with no practice or qualifying.
But Stenhouse and his No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet group which began 22nd voyaged right down toward the South Carolina track from the Charlotte zone to run not so much as a full lap.
Stenhouse Jr. rushed to talk on the issue, however. He tweeted out a video wherein he called the disaster as “embarrassing.”

Within the track, it looked like Stenhouse was running wide coming from turn 2 when he and another vehicle reached, which sent the No. 47 vehicle straight into the divider and barrier. It was a great deal of harm to that vehicle, including flying flares from the car, and it drew out the caution flag on Lap 1.
Following the accident, Stenhouse was assessed and discharged from the infield care center.

He said: “Not a whole lot to say. Put myself in a bad spot to start the race. Embarrassing for myself and my team. We will be ready for Wednesday.”
As a feature of new safety rules of NASCAR race, drivers didn’t run qualifying or practice laps at the track. Groups limits to 16 team individuals on race day. It’s indistinct if changes has anything to do with Stenhouse’s brisk accident.
Next NASCAR race is on Wednesday at Darlington, trailed by the Coca-Cola 600 next Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
