During the second of three Sprint Cup practice sessions at Michigan, BK Racing's Ryan Truex lost control while exiting turn two. He overcorrected, sending the car nose-first into the outside SAFER Barrier. The impact lifted the rear wheels off the ground.

 

He walked away from the mangled wreckage, but has since been transported to a local Michigan hospital for further evaluation. He was complaining about head and shoulder pain after the accident according to BK Racing officials, and is now being checked for a possible concussion. 

He had topped 200mph and posted a lap fast enough for 33rd before the accident took place. BK Racing has notified Motorsport.com that Truex will not race tomorrow. J.J. Yeley has been selected as a replacement.
