It was a very long day at The Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400. The day started out with a crash at the 14th lap in turn #3 then the rain hit lasting over a hour and a half and then the conclusion of the first stage under the new rules. The second stage brought more excitement with JJ Yeley, Jeffery Earnhardt and David Ragan crashing in turn one. Then another in turn #3 involving Joey Gase. Then the 3rf stage brought chaos in turn 1,3 and multiple crashes in the front stretch. So if you left after the rain you missed out on the wildest and longest day for the Monster Energy NASCAR CUP SERIES at the The Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400.
