NXS: Joey Gase to Back-Up Car After Practice Wreck


DOVER, Del. — Working into turn 3 during practice for Saturday’s OneMain Financial 200 from Dover international Speedway, Joey Gase went for a spin with the help of Spencer Gallagher.

As the two entered into turn 3, it looked as Gallagher went high clipping the back of the No. 52 Sparks machine of Gase. Gase went for a spin and eventually backed his car up into the outside wall damaging the entire rear of the car.

“He just flat out spun me going into [turn] three for no reason,” Gase said to FS1 in the garage. “I gave him plenty of room and he just drove it right into me.”

When asked how the conversation between the two went, Gase explained that “all he said was get the hell away from me!”

In nine starts in the NXS series at Dover, Gase has a best finish of 23rd place, twice – 2014 and 2016.

“I think it just shows how bad of a driver he is,” exclaimed a disappointed Gase.

Immediately following the accident, the Jimmy Means Racing team started to pull out the back-up car to get working on in time for the second practice of the day at 1:30 pm. Qualifying for Saturday’s event is set for 10:05 AM.
