Frankie Muniz failed to finish a race for the first time during the 2023 ARCA Menards season when he crashed into the wall Saturday night at Elko Speedway in Minnesota.
Muniz entered the Menards 250 second in the points standings when he rolled over in the late stages of the race and suffered a heavy crash into the wall. He drove a few more meters before the vehicle came to a stop and he got out of his smoking car.

He then tweeted that he was «fine.»
«I’m fine after that big crash. A little sore. Really frustrated because we were fighting the whole race in the top 5. I still know I have a lot to learn, but I know I have to be out there in a race car. «I’m not not even close to my peak. Thanks to my team @RetteJones30 for all your hard work,» he wrote on social media.

Muniz added that his team really needed additional sponsors for the rest of the season.
«I can’t wait to get home to my family tomorrow morning, I know that will help me feel better! Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far on this journey of fulfilling my dream.»
Muniz has been a refreshing surprise on the ARCA scene this season. The actor-turned-driver finished 16th on Saturday, but completed the season’s first six races with five top-10 finishes.
