McDowell hits safety truck under caution

For Ipad users:

McDowell was circling under caution on Lap 288 when he ran into the rear of the truck positioned at the entrance of Turn 3 near the top of the track. While McDowell swerved left to avoid a head-on collision, the back end of his No. 95 car swiped the rear of the truck.

None of the six safety workers were injured, as NASCAR mandated they visit the infield medical center to get checked out. McDowell radioed to his team that he never saw the vehicle.

"I'm just really glad nobody got hurt when they were getting out," he said.

McDowell's car suffered significant rear-end damage and he immediately drove to the garage. He would not return to the Federated Auto Parts 400.
