More Nutty NASCAR Madness

Only caught the last fifteen minutes of last night's NASCAR race from Talladega and it looks like I didn't miss much - NASCAR bosses are being (rightly) panned for pre-race announcement that they would launch punitive measures against overly aggressive drivers.  That said, the last few laps were more than dramatic.  In the space of five laps we were treated to these two 'minor incidents'.  Everybody walked away safely.

Firstly, take a look at Ryan Newman' flip:



And now here's footage of a multi-car crash that was headlined by Mark Martin's flip (that's him in the 5 car)
