Contender may have to say goodbye to his championship hopes after this crash @NASCARonNBC / Twitter

Brennan Poole was 4th in the Xfinity playoff standings, but saw his championship hopes dashed in stage one of the race in Phoenix. Poole and contender Daniel Hemric made contact and Poole was sent into the wall hard.

Unable to return to the race, Poole’s DNF will open the door for contenders Matt Tifft, Cole Custer and Ryan Reed to get the final spot for next week’s championship race. Hemric was able to return to the race and will also have a shot at making the championship race.
