A NASCAR executive said series officials will work with Auto Club Speedway officials to see if there is a way to alter the angle of the inside wall Matt Kenseth hit in Sunday's Cup race.

Kenseth hit a portion of the wall that was angled toward the track. Safety equipment was stationed behind that wall.

Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer, was asked Monday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio's "The Morning Drive" about Kenseth's incident and the angle that Kenseth's car hit.

"We'll download all the data, in this case from the incident data recorder, we'll talk to Matt, we will inspect the car for sure with all of our safety engineers and kind of combine all that data and look at the angle and the speed and scrub and look at all that data to make sure that we have the best possible outcome,'' O'Donnell said.

"One of the things you pointed out was the angle of the wall. It's positioned that way for the safety equipment, but are there tweaks we can make? We've done that numerous times in terms of you see a crash that you never thought would happen and it kind of opens some eyes and (you) say, 'OK is there a better way to potentially angle this wall?'
