Buster Graham Involved In Crash At Daytona Motor Speedway [Video]
Sometimes racing is more about luck than it is about skill. Acadiana driver Buster Graham certainly has the skill and expertise to compete on the big tracks with the big boys of auto racing. This past Saturday in the Lucas Oil 200 for the ARCA Racing Series, Buster just wasn't lucky. In a car sporting the colors and logos of Louisiana Tech, Buster was involved in an incident heading into turn 3 at the world famous Daytona International Speedway.
It appears as though the driver of the driver of the #66 machine Leilani Munter moved up the race track making contact with the #5 car driven by Bobby Gerhart. This contact turned Munter's machine sideways directly in front of the #17 driven by Lafayette native Buster Graham. As you can see in the video Buster had no where to go but right into the side of Munter's machine.
Grant Enfinger took the checkered flag and the victory in the Lucas Oil 200 for the ARCA series. It was his second straight victory in this race, as he was last year's winner as well. For Buster's trouble while he was running in the middle of the pack when the accident occurred the crash and resulting damage relegated him to a 37th place finish.
