Bubba Wallace, Erik Jones crash through backstretch tire barrier

Bubba Wallace crashes out of practice ahead of the 2018 Bank of America Roval 400 with a brutal collision into the wall.

CONCORD, N.C. -- Bubba Wallace and Erik Jones were unharmed after experiencing hard crashes in Saturday’s first Cup practice, both plowing through the tire barrier at the exit of the backstretch chicane on the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course.

Wallace, who spun four times Friday, was unharmed after he got loose in the chicane and the hit rumble strips, which launched his No. 43 Chevrolet into the tire barrier 11 minutes into the session.

Erik Jones followed him with about 6 minutes left in the session, getting loose while running behind another car. Jones was also launched into the tire barrier by the rumble strips.
