Larson talks about Fontana wreck

Kyle Larson was involved in a single car accident on lap 48 in the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.
Q) WHAT HAPPENED?
Larson: "I was going down the back stretch and I think it was my left-rear tire got cut. It must have ripped the brake line because I went to push the pedal and it went straight to the floor board. I couldn't slow down. It was definitely a hard hit there, probably one of the harder ones of my career. Even before that we were pretty sub-average there, we were pretty bad. Disappointed in our run today, but glad I'm alright."

Q) ON THE INCIDENT:
Larson: "We were struggling all day. We were really bad. And just on that backstretch, my left rear tire got cut and spun me to the outside wall and then spun me back into the inside wall. By the time I could hit the brakes it must have ripped the brake line and I had no brakes. They just went to the floorboard. I couldn't slow down and had a hard hit there; head-on. I'm okay. I'm thankful for Safer barriers and thankful that I'm all right. That was definitely probably the hardest hit I've ever had in my career. I'm glad to be on my feet right here." Team Chevy
