They say it’s only a matter of time until the Big One hits at Talladega Superspeedway.
“When the [No.] 27 went around us on the top there it’s just going to pull you around almost every time,” said Bayne who was the first car to lose control. “Now I see that Kurt [Busch] is pretty close to our left rear so that’s double trouble. When you get the air moving around here in these high speeds, it’s as much as physically hitting each other.”
“I didn’t see a whole lot,” Larson told FOX. “I saw the [No.] 6 get sideways in front of me, I don’t know if somebody got into him or not or he just got the air taken off him. From there, [I] tried to miss the wrecks and thought I was gong to clear it all and then the [No.] 40 started coming up the track.”
The red flag was immediately waved to halt the race for more than 11 minutes and clean the mess on the ‘Alabama Gang Superstretch.’
“I was on the outside so I couldn’t really see what was gong on,” Kahne said while still sitting in his No. 5 Chevrolet in the garage. “I saw them trying to ditch the [No.] 6 for awhile on the inside, middle wherever he was at.”
