  What Is Gap Insurance (And Why You May Need It)? It helps protect motorists who are "upside down" on a lease or car loan.If you’re buying or leasing a new car or truck these days, you’ll likely be offered – perhaps required to purchase – so-called gap insurance. This type of policy covers the difference between what a given vehicle is worth and what the owner or lessee still owes on it, should it be stolen or become totaled in an accident. For the record, “gap” stands not for the above imparity, but for Guaranteed Auto Protection.

A heavy multicar crash late in Saturday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race snared William Byron, Clint Bowyer and more, forcing a red flag with 14 laps remaining at Kansas Speedway.

Byron triggered the melee as he appeared to lose grip under the No. 14 of Bowyer, and his No. 24 Chevrolet nosed hard into the outside retaining wall, lifting its rear wheels off the ground with the impact. Byron’s car landed on the roof of Ryan Newman’s No. 31 Chevy as more cars scrambled to avoid the mess.

The first red flag lasted 18 minutes, 20 seconds. The race went back to green flag racing on Lap 28 when yet another multi - car wreck – this time 12 cars – took place one lap later on the back straightaway, bringing out the red flag once again.

Byron exited his crumpled car under his own power, which at that point was a fiery wreck. He told FS1 after being released from the infield care center that it was the most severe hit of his career.

“I think overall we were trying to kind of push some things there and it didn’t work out,” said Byron, who gained track position with two-tire stops on more than one occasion in Saturday’s KC Masterpiece 400. “We’re going to wherever’s next and that one was definitely the hardest hit I’ve been in, but thankful to be walking so that’s good.”

Other drivers involved were Matt Kenseth in his first event of the season, Jamie McMurray, Ty Dillon and Chris Buescher.
