Hold My Beer

Hold My Beer – Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

Hold My Beer is the segment that features some of the highlights where you can imagine drivers saying, “Hold my beer and watch this!” This week, we’re venturing into the world of IndyCar as their first race of the season was action-filled.

Crash Compilation

There were so many accidents that for the most part, it’s probably easiest to show you all of them in one video for now. However, there’s one accident that we’ll get into a little more detail for in a little bit. Meanwhile, enjoy this video.

 

Final Lap

This crash was probably the most talked-about incident all race. Rookie Robert Wickens had been running pretty solidly for most of the race. On the final lap, he was in the lead with Alexander Rossi running in second. As the race restarted, Rossi got into Wickens, taking Wickens out of the race and eventually giving Sebastien Bourdais the win. Some say it was just a racing incident while others say Rossi was completely at fault – watch for yourself and let us know your thoughts.

Hold My Beer – Daytona 500

This one’s also back! Hold My Beer is the segment that features some of the highlights where you can imagine drivers saying, “Hold my beer and watch this!” We’ve got a couple of those moments from this year’s Daytona 500.

Chase Elliott

This one included several drivers, including Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, and Danica Patrick, whose Daytona 500 was cut short and is now done in NASCAR.

 

End of Stage 1

Ricky Stenhouse Jr tried to block Ryan Blaney and, well, chaos ensued. The wreck ended up taking out drivers like Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez, Jimmie Johnson and William Byron. That was declared the end of stage one.

 

End of Race

This one has a couple such moments. Aric Almirola was bumped out of the way by Austin Dillon on the last lap. Also included was Bubba Wallace and Denny Hamlin getting into each other after the checkered flag (which then sparked some heated words between the two of them after media center duties).

Hold My Beer – First Data 500

Hold My Beer is the segment that features some of the highlights where you can imagine drivers saying, “Hold my beer and watch this!” Beer was definitely held for a couple drivers.

Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin

Within the last four laps, Denny Hamlin spun Chase Elliott out of the lead and subsequently became one of the least popular drivers of the race. After the race, things ended up getting heated (shown in the next clip). Here’s a video of the incident itself.

Final Lap and Post Race

Coming to the checkered flag, there was a giant wreck that involved a sizable chunk of the field. As you can imagine, Kyle Busch’s victory was a tad overshadowed. Also as mentioned, this clip also includes Hamlin/Elliott post-race drama and all the boos that Hamlin received following the spin.

Hold My Beer – Hollywood Casino 400

Hold My Beer is the segment that features some of the highlights where you can imagine drivers saying, “Hold my beer and watch this!” Unfortunately, as with any of the “Famous Last Words” phrases, it didn’t end well.

Erik Jones’ car became loose and he spun, which collected multiple other drivers. Unfortunately, the list of drivers involved included Matt Kenseth and Jamie McMurray, who were both eliminated from the playoffs.

Kenseth’s day got even worse thanks to the wreck when he was parked for the rest of the race for having too many men over the wall while his car was getting fixed.

Whoops.

Hold My Beer – Alabama 500

Hold My Beer is the segment that features some of the highlights where you can imagine drivers saying, “Hold my beer and watch this!” Well, y’all, it’s a playoff race at Talladega. You knew some of the drivers would need to have their beers held.

NCWTS Race

Chris Fontaine and Cody Coughlin got into each other during the race and while it wasn’t QUITE The Big One, it was still an oopsies.

Here’s hoping duct tape fixed the cars and a six-pack fixed things between Fontaine and Coughlin.

MENCS race

What’s a race at Talladega without The Big One? Trying to go four-wide at ‘Dega didn’t go so well for Martin Truex Jr (“Hold my beer and watch me make it four wide!”) and he collected 15 other cars with him – including some playoff drivers.

OOPS. Again, duct tape for the cars and six-packs of beer for the other drivers.
