We've Got Beef: Joyner Wipes Out McCaskill in Limited Late Model Event at Southern National
Emotions were high after Ryan Joyner sent Bradley McCaskill crashing with seven laps remaining in Sunday's Limited Late Model event at Southern National Motorsports Park.
Bradley McCaskill started from the pole in Sunday's Thanksgiving Classic Limited Late Model event at Southern National Motorsports Park, and he dominated the event in the opening half of the 75-lap contest.
However, in the closing laps, McCaskill found himself chasing Robert Arch, who applied the chrome horn for the race lead with 38 laps remaining in the event.
With seven laps remaining, McCaskill saw his bid for the win come to a crashing halt at the hands of Ryan Joyner, who battled McCaskill for the lead earlier in the race.
Joyner shoved McCaskill all the way through turns 3 and 4, and as they crossed the finish line with seven laps remaining, Joyner reconnected with the rear of McCaskill's No. 7 machine. This time, the contact was even more severe, and it sent McCaskill knifing to the right into the outside wall.
Following the crash, which ended the race for both drivers, McCaskill poked his head inside the passenger window of Joyner's car. As Joyner arrived, crew members started arguing and getting into it around the No. 15 machine.
Here is a video of the incident and aftermath from the Racing America broadcast.
While McCaskill was wiped out while running in the runner-up position with seven laps to go, it was Arch who would take the victory over Chris Chapman.
However, after the race, Arch was disqualified due to an issue with the shocks on his race car. As a result, Chapman would be named the official winner of the race.
Jacob Derrick would come home with a stealthy second-place finish in the No. 88 entry.
McCaskill, who saw a heartbreaking end to a strong race in the Limited Late Model event, will have a chance at redemption in the 250-lap Late Model Stock event on Sunday afternoon.
Prior to the Late Model Stock event, McCaskill was involved in another scuffle with Joyner, who walked over and yanked the ignition box out of McCaskill's Late Model Stock machine.
