Say what you will about NASCAR, but there's no denying that the race series remains a spectacle. Look no further than the last two laps at Talladega this past weekend as evidence. The final restart of the race saw Matt Kenseth at the head of the pack, but Tony Stewart managed to take the lead just before the white flag fell thanks to a push from Sam Hornish. But as the pack came out of Turn 3, Stewart dropped low to attempt to gain yet another push, snagging the rear of his car on the nose of Michael Waltrip's machine.
The contact sent Stewart spinning into the pack, now four-wide behind him, and the resulting collision soaked up just about everyone on the field. Kenseth, meanwhile, escaped the fray and took the checkered flag for the win.
