Terrifying NASCAR Wreck at Talladega (Official) [HD]
Talladega delivers another vicious wreck, pitting driver safety vs. fans'
TALLADEGA, Ala. -- If you or I had been involved in a wreck like the one
that claimed the cars of Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr.
and more than two dozen other NASCAR drivers on Sunday afternoon, we'd curl
up in a fetal position at the thought of going near a car ever again. This
was the kind of high-speed, full-throttle, nowhere-to-hide carnage that
allows real life to edge its way into your sporting Sunday, forcing you to
think, just for a second, that something really bad might just have
Fortunately for all concerned, the catastrophic wreck on the last lap of
the Good Sam 500 destroyed only acres of sheet metal (and the championship
hopes of several drivers). The maelstrom that unfolded behind winner Matt
Kenseth was terrifying to observe, yes, but ultimately nothing more than
one hell of a show.
In short, it was the perfect NASCAR wreck.
Tony Stewart (14) flips over a host of cars on the final lap at Talladega.
Of course, you'll forgive the drivers if they're not quite as thrilled
about all this. As they climbed from their cars, in various states of
agitation and disbelief, they expressed a common sentiment: This isn't how
racing should be.
With his car in neon-green shards just a few feet away, Dale Earnhardt Jr.
looked visibly shaken as he sat on the back bumper of his car hauler
talking with crew chief Steve Letarte. When he did speak to the media, he
left no doubt about his feelings on a track where he's had more success
than any other: "It's not safe wrecking like that," he said. "It's
ridiculous, man. It's bloodthirsty if that's what people want."
Earnhardt even went so far as to say if he had his way, he wouldn't run the
restrictor-plate races at Daytona and Talladega next year. "If this was how
we raced every week," he said, "I'd find another job."
Here's the question, though: Do NASCAR fans want danger, or just the
illusion of danger? Real danger, taking chances and overextending your
equipment, is what leads to serious injuries and worse. The illusion of
danger? It's a performance, and everyone knows it.

Jeff Gordon, despite having the good fortune of darting through the
wreckage to notch a second-place finish, has few fond thoughts for
Talladega: "I don't like coming here," he said after the race. "I don't
like the type of racing that I have to do. But if I'm a fan, I would love
that. I think it is incredibly intense. It's wild, it's crazy."
The problem that NASCAR faces is that two of its crown jewels, the
restrictor-plate races at Daytona and Talladega, are the races at which the
interests of the fans and the interests of the drivers diverge. NASCAR does
hold all the cards here -- it's not like a driver can refuse to drive these
races -- but how does it manage the interests of two of its most important
"I know that these are NASCAR's marquee races, the high banks of Daytona
and Talladega," winning team owner Jack Roush said after the race. "I just
figure the car's a writeoff when I load it up to bring it to one of these
In the end, showmanship be damned: The drivers are just happy to put the
Alabama foothills in their rear-view mirror. "It's good to get [Talladega]
all over with and go on to real race tracks, where we can control our
destiny and fast cars matter," Denny Hamlin said as the sound of hammers
and saws on sheet metal echoed throughout the Talladega garage. "Just
listen around you. It's a junkyard."
Brad Keselowski, who remains the points leader, put it even more directly:
"I just feel lucky to survive Talladega."
Just a guess: that won't be going into next year's marketing campaign.

the constructors. The racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials,
organizers, and circuits are required to be holders of valid Super
Licences, the highest class of racing licence issued by the FIA.

Largest Crash in NASCAR History
Thanks to Rustyfan for this great capture. In 1960 Daytona Superspeedway
hosted this sportsman race. 68 cars entered into the race, back then there
were a maximum of 68 cars in a superspeedway race. Coming out of turn four
37 cars get into a massive wreck where at least six cars get on their
roofs. Amazingly, evryone walked away from this.
By the way, I am really getting tired of people having arguments that lead
to name calling and slander. If I see a comment that put another member
down or uses any derogatory language, I will delete it and any replies to
it immediately. Also, if you do not like racing or think it is a sport,
that's fine, but at least give some logical thought into a comment that you
post. I will once again delete any comment along the line of "nascar sucks"
or "nascar is for dumb rednecks LOL!!1!1".
All I ask is for some civilized conversation, and not trash talking.
