Pole winner Elliott Sadler (#38) made contact with Kurt Busch (#97) while attempting a block down the backstretch on lap 181, turning Sadler into the infield.
Sadler’s car caught air before doing one and a half rolls mid air landed hard on the roof in the grass, the car slid on its roof until it hit the banking in turn 3, sending the car into a large barrel roll before coming to rest right side up.
Despite the vicious nature of the accident, Sadler wasn’t hurt.
