Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon pancaked the wall during practice at Darlington

Kyle Larson went to a backup car after bashing into the wall off of turn two during Friday's first practice session at Darlington.

Austin Dillon did the same thing, but he didn't hit the wall as hard. While the right side of his car was pancaked, it wasn't to the extent of Larson's.

Don't let the title of the video fool you. These were not Darlington stripes. These were almost accidents. After Larson hit the wall, NASCAR even threw a caution to check the track for debris.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Martin Truex Jr. and Alex Bowman hit the wall too, but not as severely as the other two drivers. Theirs were probably the closest to a Darlington stripe, a sight we'll see a lot on Saturday night.
