DOVER, Delaware (AP) -- The NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway was red flagged because of potholes in the concrete track.

The race was stopped 160 laps into Sunday's 400-lap race after chunks of the track came loose and damaged Jamie McMurray's car. The race was soon stopped and crews were not allowed to work on the cars.

McMurray's plea for an exception was denied.

NASCAR officials and safety crews went to work on the potholes and tried to apply a quick-drying concrete mix. Cup races were infamously delayed by potholes at Martinsville in 2004 and the 2010 Daytona 500.
