Tony Stewart was uninjured after he crashed during a tire test Tuesday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A team spokeperson said Stewart was "fine."
Indianapolis TV station WISH reported on its website that Stewart was not transported by paramedics but was in contact with NASCAR medical personnel.
Stewart hit the Turn 1 wall, according to the report. Stewart crashed after a tire went down. He was testing tires for Goodyear on Monday and Tuesday with Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano and Kyle Busch.
A three-time series champion, Stewart has won the Brickyard 400 twice.
Stewart is 16th in the points this season heading into Sunday’s race Sonoma. He missed the final 15 races last season after breaking his leg in a sprint car crash last August.
