So much for a boring Clash.

In the final lap of the race, on Turn 3, the No. 42 of Kyle Larson bumped into the back of Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48, sending Johnson into the wall and causing a chain reaction wreck.

The wreck kept a terrible streak alive for Johnson. He’s now wrecked out of seven-consecutive Clash races, according to NBC Sports.

Despite the crash, NASCAR let the race finish, and Brad Keselowski, in his Ford, came across the finish line first.

Earlier in the race, theĀ 41 car of Kurt Busch made a run and got right up on the left rear of the number 1 of Jamie McMurray. They either just barely touched, or the air was disrupted enough to spin McMurray, sending him down to the apron, up into the wall, and back down for a ride through the grass.
