Michael McDowell brings his crippled racecar to the garage during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway on September 12, 2015 in Richmond, Virginia.

On a night when the racing on the track was pretty tame an incident during a yellow flag caused a scary moment. The incident happened during the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway Saturday night just  after the races fifth of six cautions had come out on lap 288 for debris.

The caution was just wrapping up and a crew of safety workers had just closed the doors on their safety truck which was parked at an angle just before turn 3.  Just after the doors were closed and the field was coming by, a racecar driven by Michael McDowell clipped the rear of the full size Chevy pickup. The truck shook and the racecar was able to continue on by but sustained heavy damage dragging pieces of the back of the car along the track.

McDowell was forced to park the car and his race was over MORE>>>
