Zapping Autonews Electric cars: the novelties of the year 2022

When Hailie Deegan returned to the pits this weekend, during the Nascar race in Talladega, she had no idea that her mechanics were going to make the buzz!

How ? It’s quite simple. The mechanic in charge of the left rear wheel failed. After replacing the wheel, the old rubber slipped out of his hands.

Bad luck, the circuits of Talladega and Daytona are the only ones not to have separations between the pits and the track. As a result, the tire disappeared on the circuit, between the competitors!

Fortunately, he didn’t hit anyone and didn’t really disrupt the smooth running of the race. It just gave us a totally lunar moment when the mechanic in question went after him.

A suspension is in order

As you know, to enter a track during a race, several conditions must be met. However, this mechanic set off in pursuit of the wheel without any safety measures. He risks big according to the specialized media of Nascar.
