HAMPTON, Ga. — The caution flew on Lap 2 of the Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway after a multi-car crash collected a large portion of the field.

The incident involved Christopher Bell, Austin Dillon, Tyler Reddick, Erik Jones, Carson Hocevar, Noah Gragson, Alex Bowman, Harrison Burton, Daniel Suarez, Chase Elliott, Daniel Hemric, Ryan Preece, Justin Haley, Ty Gibbs and Bubba Wallace .

The crash began as the field crossed the start-finish line. The outside line checked up behind Todd Gilliland, which created a chain reaction.

Dillon and Wallace both spun into the field while Gragson spun into the outside wall. Several drivers had to head down pit road for repairs.
