INDIANAPOLIS — Two of Stewart-Haas Racing’s cars were destroyed in one fell swoop late in Sunday’s Brickyard 400. And thanks to NBC’s helmet camera, fans got to see from the driver’s perspective just how vicious the accident was.
Clint Bowyer went spinning off turn four after he approached two cars ahead while on the outside of Erik Jones. Bowyer’s car smacked hard into the inside wall before pit lane and ricocheted back onto the track and into the path of Busch, who piled into Bowyer and sent him spinning again.

You can see how Busch never lets go of the wheel until his car comes to a complete stop. And the view from the camera gives you a great glimpse at how hard NASCAR accidents can be.
“Bowyer went left, [Erik Jones] was going right,” Busch said. “I tried to shoot the middle and Bowyer ricocheted back up onto the track. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
The six-hour race featured three red flags and 14 cautions that took up 55 of the race’s 167 laps.
