After a much-needed and well-deserved weekend off, the Sprint Cup heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday for the Pep Boys Auto 500.  Just like the last race at Bristol, this event will be run under the lights and is sure to dish out plenty of excitement.  Take a look at some of the crashes from past events after the jump.

I apologize for the rather poor quality of this video, but it was the only version available and I wanted to include Steve Park’s crash in this collection.  This crash, which left Park with multiple broken bones, sidelined him for most of the season.
