Ryan Newman and Michael McDowell have crashed hard in the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International, causing a stoppage just past the midpoint of the 90-lap race.

The violent wreck Sunday occurred coming out of a sweeping right turn leading to the backstretch on the 2.45-mile road course. Greg Biffle clipped the rear end of Newman's No. 31, setting off an accident involving at least five cars.

Newman's Chevrolet spun hard into the Armco barrier lining the track, ripping a big hole in the barrier's metal. The car then spun around twice and went back across the racing surface, collecting McDowell in his No. 95, which incurred heavy damage in the rear.

Newman, McDowell and Alex Bowman were treated in the infield care center and released.
