Kyle Busch’s Daytona 500 victory hopes hit the wall – literally – on Lap 50 in Sunday’s race.

Busch was heading into Turn 3 when it appeared his left front tire blew out, causing his car began to spin and made contact with D.J. Kennington.

It was the second tire blowout Busch had in the race.

Both the impact with Kennington, as well as when Busch backed into the wall, caused much of the rear of his Toyota Camry to pull away from the car. He entered pit road with it hanging behind him.

Busch went three laps down of the leaders.

“It looked like the tire was overworked,” said Greg Stucker of Goodyear.

Stucker said there was no sign of a puncture on the tire.

Busch eventually finished 25th in the race.
