A NASCAR prodigy's big win at the 51st annual Snowball Derby was briefly overshadowed when he crashed and burned on live TV.
Kyle Busch Motorsports' Noah Gragson took the lead with six laps left of the Super Late Model showcase and successfully held off competitors Ty Majeski and Jeff Choquette to achieve victory.
During his post-race celebration at Pensacola's Five Flags Speedway, the 20-year-old stock car racer was painfully rejected when he tried to kiss a Snowball Derby model in a now-viral video.
Fellow drivers Corey LaJoie, Conor Daly and Justin Bonsignore couldn't help but roast the Gragson for creating such an incredibly awkward moment.
The thirsty winner did end up getting a peck on second attempt in a video he tweeted to his followers.
ESPN reports that this was Gragson's final race with Kyle Busch Motorsports. He has signed with Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s JR Motorsports to compete in the NASCAR Xfinity series.
