The newly-paved Atlanta Motor Speedway was home to the latest NASCAR Cup Series race, the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, on Sunday (March 20).

CBS Sports reports that “the end result was one of the most remarkable races in the speedway’s history,” with Hendricks Motorsports’ William Byron taking home the victory in the Number 24 car.

Byron finished the race with a time of 3:57:14, averaging a speed of 126.584 for the entire 500 mile race. His finish made history, according to CBS Sports because it “shattered the record for both the most lead changes and the most different leaders in over 60 years of history at the Georgia speedway.”

While the finish was historic, there was something else about the race that made headlines: a 13-car crash. During Stage 2, Tyler Reddick’s tire went out and he caused the major crash.

Other drivers involved included Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Austin Cindric, Kyle Larson, Corey LaJoie, Denny Hamlin, Christopher Bell, Harrison Burton, Michael McDowell, Todd Gilliland, Cole Custer, Alex Bowman.

The wreck that came on Lap 144 of the 325-lap race. See the full video of the 13-car crash here.
