|CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- A crewman for Greg Biffle's NASCAR team has been taken to a local hospital after getting hit by two-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart on pit road.
Stewart ran into Kevin McDowell, the right rear tire changer on the No. 16 Ford, during a late pit stop. Television replays showed McDowell slump to the concrete in pain after Stewart hit him leaving his pit stall.
