Video: Scary NASCAR Cup race accident at COTA

Martin Truex, Jr. and Cole Custer were involved in an accident on lap 26 of the very wet Echopark Texas Grand Prix NASCAR Cup Series race at Circuit of the America Sunday. Note the big crowd compared to what IndyCar was able to draw at COTA.

Blinded by the rain spray thrown up by NASCAR’s rain tires, Truex ran into the rear of Michael McDowell.  Custer did not see Truex slow and drove under the #19.  Custer’s car caught fire, but he was able to get out quickly.

Both drivers were evaluated and released from the infield care center.
