David Ragan, driver of the No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion, and Kasey Kahne, driver of the No. 9 Budweiser Ford Fusion, were involved in a multi-car accident during today's first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice session. Both Ragan and Kahne will be forced to back-up cars as a result of their damage.

KASEY KAHNE - No. 9 Budweiser Ford Fusion

"I don't know what happened. The 18 and the 6 spun and they were down under the white line. I got slowed up and then the 6 came spinning back up and down the track again. I was surprised he came back up, but I just clipped him. I didn't hit him hard, but hard enough to ruin our car."

DAVID RAGAN - No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion

"I was getting into turn three and we got a little bit free and the 18 ran up the track and just barely touched us. I didn't need much to help me go around because I was already a little free. I just needed a little bit of room to work with and the 18 was right there and probably took some air off our spoiler and touched us a little bit. That's unfortunate this early in practice to tear one up. We've got a good car that will be ready to go and, hopefully, we can make a few laps here and it won't rain. It's a shame that happened to us this early."
