Pocono got off to a shaky start as multiple drivers never made it to lap two

After a wreck-filled race at the Brickyard 400 last Sunday, the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway began with a multi-car crash on the first lap.

The crash occurred on Turn 3 of the first lap, and it included Matt Kenseth, Danica Patrick, Aric Almirola, Matt DiBenedetto, Chris Buescher and Austin Dillon.

Almirola, who just recently returned from injury, was knocked out of the race. He told NBC Sports after the race that his back was fine but his, “Feelings were hurt.”
