On Lap 19, Elliott struck a piece of debris dropped by another car, causing damage to the No. 24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet SS. As Elliott’s car slowed in the low lane, a competitor smashed into the No. 24 machine causing both cars to spin.

The accident ended Elliott’s day with a 38th-place finish after just 19 laps.
