Brian Vickers’ race ended before it was even a lap old.
His Toyota brushed the Turn 4 wall near the end of the opening lap, then spun before collecting Travil Kvapil near the entrance to pit road. Both cars went to the garages and the drivers finished 42nd and 43rd, respectively.
It was a particularly tough day for Vickers, who entered the race 13th in the Sprint Cup series standings and searching for his first win of the season. It was his worst finish since a June 1 DNF at Dover.
