What’s Happening?

Crashing is a part of racing, and it always will be. As the 2024 season goes on, we are going to keep track of which drivers are involved in the most incidents throughout the season. Which patterns will emerge amongst NASCAR drivers, and which ones get involved in the most accidents?

  • For this list, we will focus on the NASCAR Cup Series, and any driver who competes in a race is eligible for the list. It does not matter if a driver races part-time or full-time. We will also only consider incidents in points-paying races.
  • We will consider “involved” in an incident based on the “cautions” list for a race on Racing Reference OR failing to finish based on a “Crash”. We will also include drivers whose contact caused the incident, even if they were not a part of the main accident itself.
  • Fans tend to harp on drivers who are involved in a lot of crashes. However, are they aiming their insults toward the right driver, or are other drivers more susceptible to incidents?
