As you may remember I keep a database of how many times drivers crash in a race during the season. In 2020 I weekly followed the Cup, Xfinity, Truck, ARCA, ARCA West, ARCA East, Modifieds, Indycar, and F1. Below are the totals ranked from most to fewest across these series this season, except F1 who doesn't end until almost Christmas.

This is dedication
Lol I'm 3 years into this and my eyes hurt. But I ultimately plan to get it all organized into a book a some point. Its a passion project for sure, based solely off one day at work when I wondered "I wonder what driver has crashed the most?" It snowballed from there.

I assume these accidents were not race ending.

I think JHN will improve next season, he's fast, its just he has to keep the car out of the wall.

He pushes and tries to do more with what he has, but I think another season under his belt will help his cause. Rather have someone who is fast and calm them down than to get someone up to speed. I watch him and he's about as close to Greg Biffle in terms of how loose his car is.

Correct, I go through each race result, list each driver who is listed as crashed or damaged vehicle policy. Then I go through caution flags and list who was involved in each crash related one. Its impossible to ever have it 100% accurate unfortunately because with road courses or last lap spins in the back of the pack I can't accurately get everyone.

Most of RWR drivers are part time.

JHN crashing in two-thirds of races is ... disturbing.
His season is tied for 2nd most ever in a season. David Ragan and David Stremme both had a season with 24.

Yeah he definitely pushes he led the Xfinity series last year too.

What I've seen with doing this is the small teams wreck less because they can't push as hard.

I said from the outset when he signed with FRM, it's to be expected.

Another season of him and McDowell, I'm hoping he cuts down the accidents and just continues to improve. If he can, I think he could be a great prospect in the next few years.

I’ve gleaned from this data that cup drivers wreck, a lot.

indycar drivers do not.

though I’m thoroughly shocked that stenhouse did lead the pack pulling away...

Stenhouse has led the series the last 2 years and 3 times overall, for awhile it was bouncing around the house with Danica leading.

Well they only ran 14 races this year, and usually run close to about half of a Cup schedule. The wreck leader (Askew) only ran 12 races, which would put him at 15 wrecks across a full Cup calendar.

No more than Ty Dillon has crashed, you'd think that would bode well for him in getting another ride. He's not junking equipment like his brother does.
