Hemric hits crew member during Truck race - video

The jackman (Graham Molatch) was expected to pull triple duty this weekend and still will, escaping the scary collision mostly unscathed.

Daniel Hemric had a rough race at Chicagoland. He started from the rear after having to change an engine before the race. As if that wasn't a bad enough setback, he was sent to the garage early in the race with more issues. 

He eventually returned to the race track, 58 laps down. Later in the race, he was attempting a green-flag pit stop with apparent brake issues when everything went awry for the 24-year-old once again.

The crew member struck in the video is Graham Molatch, who regularly serves as jackman on Kyle Larson's Cup team. He will be able to compete in Saturday's Xfinity race and Sunday's Cup race as scheduled after getting hit on pit road in Saturday morning's Truck series race.

Molatch suffered only bruises in the incident.
