The driver of the No. 7 Chevrolet in the Xfinity Series was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation after a last-lap crash in Thursday night’s Shady Rays 200 race at Kentucky Speedway.
Allgaier was racing for position on the backstretch during the white-flag lap when was collected in a multi-car crash, with his No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet sliding into the back of Ronnie Bassett Jr.’s No. 90 Chevrolet. Bassett slammed nose-first into the inside wall, sending the car aloft before it slid to a stop. Timmy Hill was also involved in the incident, crashing into Bassett’s spinning car in the No. 61 Toyota.
UPDATE: The drivers of the Nos. 61 and 90 have been evaluated and released from the infield care center.
