'The Big One(s)' strikes late

After mostly green-flag running, on the 189th lap, race leader Kevin Harvick got loose with an advancing Ross Chastain on his tail, spun and collected nine other cars with 71 laps left before the finish. Then several laps later race leader Aric Almirola, running on 76-lap-old tires, blew a right rear and spun coming off turn 4, collecting a number of other cars.

Ambetter Health 400 preview

There’s more high-speed pack racing in store this weekend as the NASCAR Cup Series returns to Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Franken-track. Prior to the 2022 season, speedway management completed a facelift of the 1.54-mile circuit that narrowed the corners and raised the banking to 28 degrees to encourage racing that more resembles the 2.5-mile-plus Daytona and Talladega superspeedways.

The results were mixed. While organizers got the exciting pack racing they wanted, between two races there were 22 cautions for crashes. That’s more than the last four races at Daytona and Talladega combined. Settle in for a long Sunday afternoon.

Here’s what else to know ahead of the Ambetter Health 400:
