Veekay was mid-spin when another rookie, Devlin DeFrancesco made contact hitting the right rear of the No. 21 Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet. The crew was able to repair the damage and VeeKay is back on the track, two laps down in 24th.

DeFrancesco is in 25th, also two laps down after damage repairs.
