NASCAR crews work on SAFER barrier

The red flag was waved with just under 60 laps remaining in Sunday's Can-Am 500 at Phoenix Raceway after the SAFER barrier in Turn 3 caught fire twice. 

The rare event occurred after Chris Buescher's brake rotors exploded on Lap 253, hurling red-hot pieces of metal into the foam barrier resulting in two small fires.

The flames were quickly extinguished by track safety crews, who had to make repairs to the SAFER barrier before the green flag was waved in the penultimate NASCAR Cup Series race of the season.
