10 BEST MOVIE CAR CRASHES

What are the coolest car crashes in movie history? This is exactly the type of debate we have around the office while we are supposed to be working. Rather than let this argument - and the heavy yelling and shoving that went with it - go to waste, we decided to take the top 10 and make a list. A great crash is the almost-orgasmic culmination of a great chase scene, so you will notice that most of these crashes follow a classic chase.  Please note that this list does not include Bullitt, w ...

‘THE WRECKER’ STEVE WALLACE

The legend of 'The Wrecker' Steve Wallace grows. The Nationwide driver, whom many writers liken to a poor-man's Kyle Busch when it comes to track etiquette, took his act to a new level during Saturday night's Nationwide race at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Ill. While fighting for the 10th position, rookie Scott Lagasse went to the inside of Wallace in the first turn. Wallace did not give much room and wound up against the wall. What happened next is what makes Wallace such a special ...

FATAL NASCAR CRASHES

The Car of Tomorrow might produce boring racing, but it saves lives. Does Kyle Busch walk away unscathed after his wreck at Daytona? How about Carl Edwards at Talladega? Thanks to the Car of Tomorrow and other safety advances made both inside and outside the vehicle, Busch and Edwards climbed out of their cars looking as if nothing happened. It was not always this way. It would be unfair to blame the old car for every driver death, but it is fair to say that the Car of Tomorrow is the centerpiec ...

KYLE BUSCH DAYTONA CRASH FAN VIDEOS

Plenty of fans had their cameras out when Tony Stewart spun Kyle Busch on Saturday during the last lap of the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona. The wreck was as amazing and horrific to watch from the stands as it was on television. TNT, which did an excellent job covering the race and the crash, could not capture the euphoria that poured from the stands when the Sprint Cup's most hated driver wrecked. These fan videos are shaky and incomplete, but they offer new perspectives on one of the biggest crashe ...

COKE ZERO 400 KYLE BUSCH CRASH

Tony Stewart won the Coke Zero 400 on Saturday, but he didn't like the way he won it. In the first restrictor-plate race since Carl Edwards went airborne into the catch fence at Talladega and injured seven fans, Stewart spun Kyle Busch on the final lap at Daytona on Saturday, causing a crash that sent Busch to the infield care center. (It appears he is OK.) Busch tried to block Stewart on the final lap, but Stewart made slight contact with Busch. Busch lost control and was struck by cars driven ...

DAYTONA CRASHES PART TWO

Daytona isn't called the world center of speed for nothing.  The 2.5-mile-long tri-oval has a knack for drama and seems to dole out triumph and tragedy in equal parts.  Check out some of the drama that is Daytona in our follow-up to yesterday's post.  Darrell Waltrip's practice crash 1990The early 1990s were not a good time for Waltrip and Daytona.  This grinding practice crash sidelined him until September, and then during the July race in 1991...The 1989 Pepsi 400 Big On ...
