Sunday’s Verizon 200 at the Brickyard saw a very dangerous wrecker with 21 laps remaining after a huge collision between Hendrick Motorsports Kyle Larson and Petty GMS Motorsports’ Ty Dillon.

Larson completely took out Ty Dillon heading into Turn 1 at high speed in a fierce wreck which resulted in the No. 5 car getting air, the NASCAR community believed, including the broadcasters on  NBC , that there was some type of mechanical brake failure.

However Fox reporter Bob Pockrass dismissed any such cliams of mechanical brake failure when he contacted Hendrick Motorsports.

“Checked with Hendrick Motorsports and they didn’t see any sign of brake failure in the Larson car following the wreck.” – Said Bob Pockrass

Kyle Larson was driving hard as he moved toward the bend on Turn 1 and appeared to have little to no control of his brakes leaving his car smashing into the side of Dillon.

Thankfully both drivers Larson and Dillon were able to walk away from their cars relatively unscathed and was released from care center after being evaluated. 

On the latest episode of NASCAR Race Hub the incident was brought for discussion when host Larry McReynolds confirmed the the Team HMS said it was “It was simply a driver error” not a mechanical brake failure.

“We talked about Turn 1 in next level i mean that’s a 3,350 foot front straightaway,: Said Larry Reynolds, and you use heavy braking and honestly i went to bed last night based on what information i had saying he lost his brakes it totally made sense.” 

“Our teammate Bob Pockrass talked to the team (HMS) today and they said there was no parts failure coming from the team that “it was simply a driver error”  yeah surprising a story certainly we will continue to follow when we roll on with NASCAR.” He added 

After the hit, Kyle Larson ran over to Ty Dillon, who was out of his car to talk to him and check on his well-being.
