Blown truck tire hits lower front fender

My front passenger side fender went over a giant blown truck tire slice that suddenly appeared in the road last night, resulting in the odd-looking paint damage below. There already was a tiny bit of road rash there, but apparently I suffered quite a bit more on the fairly long journey I was returning from. I know about getting rid of the road rash via the Dr. Colorchip kit, but any suggestions for the paint damage from the truck tire? Treat it just like a chip, though an oversized one, with the OEM touch-up and blob eliminator?
