DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Eric McClure says he remembers only bits and pieces of his accident at Talladega, but knows he had lost his brakes before the impact.
McClure suffered a concussion and internal bruising in the accident in the Nationwide Series race on Saturday. He says he believed he was headed toward his first career top-10 when the accident began in front of him.
McClure was then hit by another car, and heading toward the inside wall, he says he ``went to hit the brake pedal and the brakes were not there.''
McClure was airlifted to an Alabama hospital, where he spent two nights with a concussion and internal bruising. He will not race Friday night at Darlington Raceway and has been replaced by Jeff Green in the car.
