With 10 laps remaining at the Brickyard 400, three drivers wrecked out after a crash involving Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch and Erik Jones.
Bowyer’s No. 14 car got loose and took Erik Jones with him. Kurt Busch’s car also suffered enough damage to end his day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Here’s a view of the wreck from Kurt Busch himself.
“I knew the 77 had a run on me and then all hell broke loose,” Bowyer told NBC Sports after the race. “It pretty much sucks.
“It was definitely not needed, for sure. But we’ll regroup. This is a strong team. I thought we were going to have a (top-five) finish, for sure, but it just wasn’t our day.”
Busch is the only driver of the three to have a win this season, so his playoff standing is secure. But Bowyer and Jones are fighting for playoff sports, and today’s wreck is devastating for the playoff chances of both drivers.
