VIDEO: Massive NASCAR Talladega crash on last lap

New, comment

I've watched this video several times, and I still can't believe it. The various angles and the in-car shots of today's last-lap crash at Talladega Superspeedway are absolutely insane.

See for yourself:

The most amazing thing is the shots of Tony Stewart's car flying toward Clint Bowyer and Kasey Kahne. Michael Waltrip had a head of steam and was being pushed to the front by Casey Mears, and Stewart made a late move to slide down the track and block them.

It didn't work. Instead, Waltrip made contact with Stewart and it set off a massive collision which collected at least 20 cars.

Anyone who wondered if Sunday's race would come and go without the Big One happening was just kidding themselves. Of course it was going to happen; who knew it would wait until the final turn, though?

It's just crazy, honestly. But that's Talladega racing for you. Simply unbelievable.
