Treadway gets taken out early.

Ft. Worth: Rick Treadway's night ended early after making contact with the #18 car and being pushed into the outside wall of turn two on lap nine of the Boomtown 500 from the Texas Motor Speedway. Treadway finished 23rd in his #55 Big Tex Trailers entry for Treadway-Hubbard Racing.

"I'm really disappointed," said Treadway. "I feel bad for my sponsors Big Tex Trailers and Uptime that we got taken out so early. I really don't know what the #18 car was thinking. I was clearly faster and tried a number of times to get around him and he kept blocking me. I had a run on him going into one and he just moved up the track and put me into the wall. I really don't know what else to say. We had a fast car for the race and we were good in traffic and I really like this track. I know we would have had a good finish if I could have run all night."

The next race is the Radisson Indy 225 on June 16th from the Pike Peak International Raceway and can be seen on ABC at 4 p.m. (EDT).
