Corey LaJoie was caught up in a last-lap crash at Talladega Superspeedway that saw Tyler Reddick avoid the chaos to pick up his first NASCAR Cup Series win of the 2024 season.

The chain-reaction crash started as Michael McDowell tried to block Brad Keselowski from taking first place at the Geico 500. He came down to block Keselowski and got into the nose of the No. 6, turned sideways and spun out into the wall.

Several cars involved in a serious accident

Several cars, including LaJoie’s, got caught up in the wreck. Somehow, LaJoie’s No. 7 got underneath the No. 4 of Josh Berry and turned sideways onto the wall. LaJoie’s momentum carried him through the start-finish line as he finally got right side up.


LaJoie told reporters, “Today, I was the one upside down.”

“I did a full rotation. So, I did left side on the ground for a bit. Then it kind of stopped. Then it flipped over, hit the roof and then landed on all fours,” he explained after the race. “And the all-four hit was pretty big. I’m glad I slipped past the start-finish line though.”


Three cars involved in a bad Talladega wreck

LaJoie finished 18th. Ross Chastain, Carson Hocevar and Ryan Preece also got caught up in the wreck with LaJoie.

Reddick took home the victory. Keselowski, Noah Gragson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Alex Bowman rounded out the top five. Anthony Alfredo, William Byron, Todd Gilliland, Daniel Hemric and Harrison Burton finished in the top 10.

It was Reddick’s first win since the Hollywood Casino 400 in Kansas last year.
