Almirola was battling with Busch for a spot inside the top-ten when the two came together, resulting in a multi-car accident on the frontstretch.

The crash collected Ryan Preece and Jimmie Johnson as several cars narrowly avoided getting swept up into it. 

 

"He chopped me getting down into (Turn) 3," Almirola told NBCSN after leaving the infield care center. "I tried to squeeze in front of him in the spring on one of the restarts and he about wrecked me in Turn 3. It was returned to him and he didn't like it. He ran me up over the curb and we got together, and ruined our day. "

Almirola felt his team was close to being able to run second or third with another adjustment. Instead, he'll be scored 37th. Busch was able to continue on with left front damage.

"Frustrated. We’ve got three more weeks, and I’m going to make it hell for him," he warned. 

While Almirola is eliminated from the championship playoffs, Kyle Busch is still a title contender and entered this race atop the standings.
