Spencer Boyd crashed on the backstretch coming to the white flag at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and his damaged truck remained parked along the inside wall as the race finished. The leaders crossed the finish line under green-flag conditions. A separate crash behind the leaders in Turn 4 on the last lap led to the caution lights being illuminated.
Speaking on “The Morning Drive” Tuesday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, Elton Sawyer, NASCAR vice president of officiating and technical inspection, said of the sanctioning body‘s response to the Boyd incident:
“First and foremost we‘re glad that Spencer is OK. Second, that‘s on us. We have to own that as the sanctioning body. We had meetings post-event to look at our process and procedure and what we need to do to be better. We have more meetings (Tuesday) to put more process in place to make sure that never ever happens again.
