Suarez says Bowman "has to use his brain a little more" after crash
With 50 laps remaining in the race, Daniel Suarez attempted to pass Alex Bowman for eighth place, but was blocked multiple times by Bowman, resulting in a collision and a multi-car crash. None of the three drivers involved were able to continue racing. Suarez expressed his frustration with Bowman’s aggressive blocking, stating that Bowman should have used his brain and raced smarter. Suarez’s crew chief denied Bowman’s claim that he was flipped off at the airport. Bowman admitted that the block didn’t work out and acknowledged that he should not have attempted it. Tyler Reddick commented that this was the type of race they needed to have.
