Carl Edwards' Postrace Celebration Goes Awry At NASCAR All-Star Race

Carl Edwards' win in the NASCAR All-Star Race turned into one for the blooper reels.

As Edwards drove onto the frontstretch to celebrate, he tried to spin his car into the grass. But as he did, the splitter dug into the turf, hit the ground hard and destroyed the front end.

Edwards' car came to rest at the finish line, steam pouring from beneath the hood.

"You guys know I usually pull down there, do a backflip," Edwards said. "I thought, 'Hey, I'm gong to do a slide to the grass. This will be great.

"As soon as I turned to the grass...it just dug in the splitter. I didn't expect that."

Edwards' crew chief Bob Osborne did not seem amused and said "the 99 program does not have disposable cars."

But the driver still found humor in the situation.

"Bob has been doing a really good job of keeping the splitter down," Edwards said. "It helps on the racetrack, but it doesn't help on the grass."
