Divine intervention may have played a role in helping Kyle Larson narrowly avoid a collision during Friday night's Nationwide Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.Larson's No. 32 car found itself in all sorts of trouble after blowing a tire upon leaving the pit area. Larson had just received a two-tire change from his pit crew in order to prevent him from falling a lap down. But when Larson sped around the track to try and catch up to the field, one of his tires exploded, and it sent him heading directly toward a cleanup truck.Luckily, the 20-year-old Larson was able to steer his car into the inside wall barrier to avoid a collision, and then went on to miraculously avoid further disaster by dodging incoming traffic, as well."I didn't feel like I was going that fast and wasn't worried about blowing a tire out," Larson said after the race. "The left front blew and I saw a track worker vehicle thing just cruising on the backstretch. (The car) was pulling left pretty hard, so I was just praying there was enough room to squeeze between them. It couldn't have been more than a couple inches."Larson finished the race 32nd after beginning 12th.Via USA TODAY
