Late Crash Rips Nashville Glory From Thorn’s Grasp

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — With 96 laps to go in Sunday’s All American 400 super late model feature at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, a collective gasp came from around the facility, followed quickly by shock and silence. Illustrating just how quickly things can change in motorsports, Derek Thorn — the race’s dominant driver, who led 202 of the first 204 laps — suddenly found his car smashed against the turn-one wall. It felt like he just hooked us into the fence, but without looking at the video, it’s hard to say,” Thorn said. I don’t know what the 14 (Hocevar) did or how all that unfolded. “He just came up in front of me in turn four,” Hocevar said of Thorn. It’s late in the race, and if I lift, I lose three or four spots there. “That happened off turn two earlier in the race and I told myself I wouldn’t lift if it happened again.
