News: A serious crash occurred on lap 56 when Newman hit the Armco barrier - a guard-rail instead of a concrete wall and SAFER barrier - and bounced off it back into traffic. He was pummeled by Michael McDowell, whose car went airborne and flew backward into a barrier on the outside of the racing surface, destroying it and sending debris flying, USA Today reports. Impact: Newman was involved in the most spectacular crash of the day at Watkins Glen. In the post-accident interview, the RCR veteran expressed some real concerns about the safety barriers around the 11-turn road course. The lack of safer barrier made the crash much more violent and destructive than what we normally see on ovals. The DNF saddled Newman with a 41st-place finish at Watkins Glen International.(RotoWire, )
