Juan Pablo Montoya took the brunt of the damage in the pileup. His car was in the garage for more than 50 laps for repairs before he got back on the track.
EARLY DAMAGE FOR HARVICK
Very early Sunday, Kevin Harvick's No. 29 car had to head back to the garage after suffering some damage.
How early? The race hadn't even begun yet.
A sky diver who dropped onto the track as part of the prerace entertainment, was carrying a sandbag that held the state flag of Texas behind him.
As he came in, the sandbag slammed the side of Harvick's car, which was sitting on pit road with the rest of the cars.
The crew took the car back to the garage to do their best to repair a dent just below the window.
OKLAHOMA SOLDIERS AMONG THOSE HONORED
Texas Motor Speedway always maintains a strong involvement with supporting the military, and some Oklahoma soldiers are being included this weekend.
Fort Sill's 77th Army Band performed the national anthem before Saturday's O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge.
In addition, troops from the 97th Air Mobility Wing at Altus Air Force Base and the Wounded Warrior Battalion at San Antonio Medical Center attended the races on Saturday and Sunday.
Airman First Class Jonathan McKnight of Broken Arrow and Sgt. Kenneth Fischer of Mountain View are among the troops to be included in the “Troops at the Track” initiative.
