Rain causes race leaders to wreck just six laps in of New Hampshire Cup race

A sudden rain shower at New Hampshire Motor Speedway led to a multi-car incident involving Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin shortly after the start of Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race.

Busch and Truex were running first and second on Lap 6, when they suddenly lost control and spun into the Turn 1 wall.

Behind them, Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Hamlin spun out while racing for fifth but avoided the wall and continued on.
