HARD HIT OVERSHADOWS RACE

POCONO, P.A. _ While Greg Biffle was able to score the win on Sunday in Pocono, it was a scary wreck involving Elliott Sadler was the biggest story emerging from the day.

With weather approaching and the laps ticking away, the action on the track heated up and the racing in the middle of the pack began to intensify. As Jeff Gordon and Juan Pablo Montoya ...

EARNHARDT JR. WATKINS GLEN CRASH

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s season of unbridled, unrelenting misery continued Monday at Watkins Glen. Junior was running 26th on lap 41 when he cut inside of Reed Sorenson while entering turn 10 and lost his brakes. The cars collided and skidded across a gravel pit. Earnhardt hit the tire barrier hard, but climbed out of his car unscathed. Junior was competitive early on until a pit road speeding penalty sent him to the back of the pack.

PENNSYLVANIA 500 CRASHES

You can't accuse NASCAR of "phantom debris" on this one. On lap 62 of the Pennsylvania 500 part of the caution light at the start/finish line fell onto the track. Leader Denny Hamlin (where was his spotter?) ran over the debris, but it did not appear to damage his car. The "lights-out" moment (below) was just one of the close calls and crashes on the track Monday.
