Sunday’s EchoPark Texas Grand Prix briefly went under red flag after a fiery crash between Cole Custer and Martin Truex Jr. on Lap 25 from Circuit of the Americas.

Michael McDowell appeared to have slowed in-front of Martin Truex jr, however due to the amount of water, Truex Jr was unable to see what was ahead of him.

Truex jr ended up crashing into McDowell. Then right after came Cole Custer who also could not see due to rain slammed straight into the back of Truex’s car at full speed almost sending him Airborne.

Kevin Harvick criticize NASCAR decision to race in rainy conditions at COTA – “It’s the most unsafe thing I’ve ever done

“The only way to describe it is that you can’t see anything,” Truex explained. “So, I mean, it’s just — You just mash the gas and going through the gears on the backstretch praying that nobody is going to be there. And all of a sudden, I saw a taillight flash, and I was already in through him, so, it happens that fast going that fast.

“And then my first thought was once I hit that guy, was to stay in the gas, because I know they’re coming from behind and literally next thing I know, I get drilled. There’s just nothing you can do in those situations.”
