That was a great move by Jeff to miss the wreck and finish second.

Waltrip likely would have won that race if it weren't for Stewart coming down on him. Honestly that was probably the most competent driving Michael's done in recent memory, Stewart just got too overconfident and tried to make a block where he probably shouldn't have.

Anybody see if Trevor Bayne was in that wreck. I lost sight of him when they went back to green. He's scored in about 16th.

I think he lost the draft and only got through because he may have been on his own when the big one happened.

Im Happy to see Everyone Isnt Blaming Waltrip for that, Cause it wasnt his fault. That was just Stewart Not thinking with his head really.

If we had another GWC after that, It would have been 2002 Aarons 312 all over again.


PLEASE tell me there are reactions for this.

That was coming a lap beforehand. Tony cut down on Waltrip (Even though Waltrip still needs to go away) and it was on from there.

Wild finish....Kenseth gets a win before leaving Roush which you can color me surprised...Stewart takes a wild ride and takes all but 3 cars with him...Ragan 4th in the Front Row trash, Smith with a top 5..and Keselowski makes a huge statement with a good finish.

Note: We're checking pictures. 20 confirmed involved...but sitll not done counting

I think it's safe to say everyone on the track was involved in some way. Be easier to make a list of who wasn't involved.

Oh, and Travis Kvapil gets BK Racing its first top 10.

Ambrose getting scored in 27th. That is massively disappointing. He's been in a wreck in 7 out of the last 8 plate races.

I watched the replay.

As bad as this is for me to say, that wreck WASN'T Michael Waltrips fault. Stewart went to block him, and caused all hell to break loose. Last lap, Waltrip coming to the lead like a bat out of hell, what else would any other driver do?!? They'd probably be flooring it too

it's funny cause Tony won a race at Daytona when Kyle Busch did the exact same thing Tony did at Talledega today.

Add Kez and Biffle to that, too. I don't think either of them were involved, but I may be wrong.

Kez got a bit of a bump, but held on to the car.

The record is like 30+ set in the 1959? Daytona 500, modern day it's 30 in the 2002 Talladega Busch race.
Funny how the Spring Daytona winner was winning while the Fall Daytona winner was flipping.
Cynon was bringing up something during the race about the possibility of Jamie McMurray. He said that because Whincup won Bathurst, and Vettel won Japan, McMurray was going to win because all three drivers are in the #1 car. But it didn't out to be, but something similar did happen.
Whincup and Vettel: #1
Kligerman: #7
Put 1 and 7 together and you get 17.
Now what number does Matt Kenseth run?

I just watched the wreck in real time again, and you can hear the cars scraping against the wall as they pass by the robotic camera attached to the wall in Turn 4.

Kez had some damage from when Earnhardt came down the track, but the #47 took the brunt of that impact. I think the #17,#24,#18 #16 and #21 missed the wreck otherwise.

It may have have been a good decision on his part, it helped him avoid the accident.

I'm quite surprised that wreck wasn't caused by all this 4-wide racing that was going on, but wrecks are wrecks.
