Burton Involved In Car Wreck

Ward Burton avoided injury after he was involved in a single-vehicle accident on Monday just south of Danville, Virginia after he apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says Burton crashed around 7:30 a.m. ET.

Burton struck a guard rail after his Chevrolet Suburban ran off the right-hand side of the road.

It's been reported that Burton only suffered a bump to the head and no charges have been filed.

Burton will make his 329th NASCAR Nextel Cup Series start when the green flag drops for the Advance Auto Parts 500 at Martinsville Speedway this weekend.

Burton has made 18 starts on the .533 mile Virginia track. Burton has finished outside the Top 25 only four times and has two Top-fives and three Top-tens to his credit.
