Back near the garage, Gase was asked if there was anything that happened before the crash that may have led to it.

"I think just him not having his head screwed on right," Gase said. "He has his first opportunity ever in Xfinity. I know (team owner) Johnny Davis isn’t in the business of wrecking race cars. We’re a small team and racing hard for the lucky dog, and apparently (he) just didn’t know how to lift.

"So, maybe his throttle’s stuck. I don’t know."

Cram finished 25th in the race and didn’t appear to address the situation with Gase.

"P25! Proud of the entire @jdmotorsports01 crew for working hard to get headed in the right direction! Thank you @ksdtcpa and @flsheriffsyr for riding along!" he wrote on Instagram Sunday.

"Happy Easter and remember HE IS RISEN!"

Chandler Smith won the race with Aric Almirola, Taylor Gray, Corey Heim and Jesse Love rounding out the top five.
