You felt it coming and it didn’t come until the last lap – the big one at Talladega. It involved 20 cars. Tony Stewart was in the lead at the time but a tap from Michael Waltrip sent him sideways, then airborne. It was good to see him get out of his car unhurt. Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Ryan Newman, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Casey Mears, Paul Mennard and many others were involved.

Matt Kenseth was just ahead of the wreck and went on to win.

Jeff Gordon came in second.

Kyle Busch, David Ragan and Greg Biffle completed the Top Five.

Points leader Brad Keselowski finished seventh and extended his lead over Jimmie Johnson to 14 points. Johnson’s car was heavily damaged and he needed to hitch a ride back to the pits with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Johnson finished 17th. Earhardt was 21st.

Denny Hamlin is third in the standings, 23 points back. He finished 14th.

Race Five is up next – Saturday night at Charlotte.
