Kyle Busch, Aric Almirola involved in Bristol crash at quarter mark


Two separate incidents that combined into a big one brought out the caution at Lap 125 of 500 in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Brian Vickers slid up into Kyle Larson coming off of Turn 4, causing Vickers to run into Aric Almirola. Just behind them, Kyle Busch was spun out in the stack-up by Clint Bowyer.

Vickers was able to escape the incident, but Almirola and Busch wound up colliding in the middle of Turn 1 to trigger the caution.

Busch and Bowyer returned to the pits for damage repair, but Almirola’s No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford wound up on the hook.

As of Lap 160, Larson and Bowyer were still on the lead lap, but Busch is now several laps off the pace.
