“Our night, unfortunately, ended early [Saturday] tonight at Knoxville Raceway,” Carson McCarl Racing said in a Facebook post. “Carson McCarl had nowhere to go when a car in front of him lost control in the heat race causing a big pile-up. Thankfully, all of the safety equipment did its job keeping Carson safe tonight. Thank you to everyone who checked in on Carson. We will rebuild.”

According to World of Outlaws broadcaster Johnny Gibson, Kerry Madsen may have caught the wall in the backstretch. Another broadcaster said that they were three wide before they all came together.

Gibson said that 12 cars were involved in the heat race. However, just three cars were not damaged by the accident. The undamaged cars were out in front, as the accident happened behind them.
