Looked like Kenseth got loose, Stenhouse had to slightly check up, Jimmie Johnson didn't check up and got into Stenhouse, then Stenhouse spun and everyone plowed into it. Kurt Busch, Bowman, etc.— Jeff Gluck (@jeff_gluck) May 31, 2020
UPDATE 5:07 p.m.: Blaney’s day is done after a wreck destroyed his car. Brad Keselowski is back in the lead with a caution flag 202 laps in.
Ryan Blaney was P2 and had been chasing Brad Keselowski through lapped traffic and may have gotten spun after contact with a lapped car. Not sure who, but possibly Ty Dillon.— Jeff Gluck (@jeff_gluck) May 31, 2020
UPDATE 5 p.m.: Ryan Blaney claimed stage 1 of the race, followed by Brad Keselowski, Chase Elliott, and Joey Logano.
