McDowell involved in bad wreck during Cup qualifying at Texas Motor Speedway
Michael McDowell got a standing ovation when he exited his race car after one of the wildest rides of his life during qualifying for Sunday's Samsung 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.
McDowell's car got loose coming out of Turn 1, turned straight up the track and made impact with the outside wall at over 170 miles per hour.
McDowell just about demolished one of the sections of the safer barrier walls.
McDowell's car proceeded to roll eight times and catch on fire before coming to a stop on the apron in Turn 2.
McDowell climbed from the car and gave a wave to the crowd, which would have been impossible had it not been for the safer barrier and the new car.
The track is now under repair before qualifying continues.
