The Brickyard 400 has seen yet another big wreck involving key drivers.

With 10 laps to go in the scheduled 160-lap event, Clint Bowyer got loose, collected Erik Jones and Kurt Busch could not avoid a spinning Bowyer, as all three drivers wrecked out.

“I knew the 77 had a run on me and then all hell broke loose,” Bowyer said. “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.”

Bowyer now falls out of the top-16 for the upcoming NASCAR playoffs. He has six races left now to either win a race or earn enough points to make the 16-driver field.

The race was red-flagged to clean up all the debris on the track.
