An 11-car wreck involving multiple playoff drivers occurred with four laps left in the Stage 2 of Monday’s rain-delayed Cup race at Talladega.
“My guess is a threw a block that I shouldn’t have blocked,” Bowman told NBCSN. “I got pushed way out there and knew (Logano) was coming and tried to move down just a little bit. As soon as he touched me it just turned us sideways. They just had a bigger run than I realized. … I apologize to all the cars that got torn up, that’s on me.”
Bowman, Johnson and Larson were eliminated.
Bowyer won Stage 2.
