NASCAR MEGA CRASH

The everything-about-cars Web site Jalopnik takes a look at what the Kyle Busch crash at the Coke Zero 400 in July would have looked like through the eyes of the Predator. The photos from "Anatomy of a NASCAR mega-crash" are cool. I am not sure what the grid overlay accomplishes, other than giving an extra-terrestrial warrior who hunts the most dangerous game of all a clearer kill shot. Kudos on the decision to outfit Busch in pink.Anatomy of a NASCAR mega-crash (Jalopnik) ...

NEW HAMPSHIRE CRASH VIDEOS

 The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series officially enters The Chase with the start of this Sunday's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  I'd like to see this race end with another surprise winner like we had earlier in the year, but most of the surprises are likely to be nasty ones, like the videos after the jump.  Multi-car crash 2008 Crash video shot by fan in the stands Michael Waltrip vs. Robby Gordon 2005 and 2006  Kurt Busch crash 2006 Tony Stewar ...

TONY STEWART HITS CREWMAN

It has not been a good season for crewmen who try to avoid being run over on pit road. A month ago Juan Pablo Montoya pelted a member of David Ragan's pit crew. On Saturday at Richmond Tony Stewart ran over Dwayne Moore, a tire carrier for David Reutimann. Luckily, Moore was up and fist-bumping in no time. I don't know what these crew guys eat for breakfast, but whatever it is, Carl Edwards could sure use some. Related links:Worst crashes of 2009JJ. Yeley crashRally car hits horseMan runs ont ...

PEP BOYS AUTO 500 CRASHES

Kurt Busch has really learned to control his rage. On lap 246 in the Pep Boys Auto 500 he went sideways in Turn 4 and got into Reed Sorenson, who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. End of race for Busch. Upon exiting his car in the garage, Busch slammed his HANS device into the side of the No. 2 Miller Lite. But by the time the cameras found him in street clothes for the obligatory "WTF happened?" interview, Busch wore the forced smile of a man trying to explain to his wife that ...

ATLANTA CRASH VIDEOS

ROAD COURSE FAIL

Montreal isn't the easiest road course to race. Maybe it's the French signage. Maybe it's the contact buzz from all of the Molson fumes wafting in from the grandstands. Or maybe it's because Steven Wallace thinks Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is French for "wreck everyone in sight." Whatever the reason, last weekend's racing in Montreal provided a month's worth of highlights, all of which were documented by ESPN in the zany video below.

SCOTT STECKLY CRASH

In a weekend filled with crashes at Montreal's famed road course, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, none topped Scott Steckly's crash and flip on the final lap of the NAPA Autopro 100 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race on Sunday. Talk about wrong place, wrong time. Below are two different views of the Steckly crash. The first is a fan video shot from the stands; it is priceless for its redneck a la Francais.Scott Steckly crash - fan video Scott Steckly Montreal crash   Related lin ...
