For a brief moment on Sunday in the Snowball Derby, it looked as if John Hunter Nemechek had been holding back and was poised to steal a sure victory away from a dominant Christopher Bell.

He had taken the lead from Bell on the restart with 23 laps to go but smoke began to pillow out from under his Chevrolet. The smoke led to a large fire and the defending Derby champion was hurriedly forced to escape to pit road before it could cause a caution. As a result of the apparent mechanical failure, Nemechek fell from the lead to 21st and six laps down.
