After the race, Brad talked about the incident and described it as a normal racing incident. He said, “They launched together — the inside lane, Blaney and Jimmie — and they stretched, and then they started to slow down.

“And as they slowed down, I just had a huge run, and I made a move to the inside. I was turning down towards the grass. I might have had a foot or two, but I couldn’t go much lower.

“And I don’t know if he was trying to turn down to block me or if he was trying to turn down to get underneath Blaney, but he turned down, and I was too far forward.”

After that, he added, “There was kind of unavoidable contact at that time. I hate that it ruined his day. I don’t really necessarily know what to do differently. If I stayed in line and just pushed him, I was gonna get gobbled as I did on the last restart, so just part of the mayhem with these restarts.”
