GOING TO COVER SOME NASCAR CRASHES. SOME WILL BE A PHOTO SEQUENCES.
I'LL TRY TO PROVIDE WHAT INFO I CAN ON ALL THE PHOTOS.
Bobby Allison spun off turn #4 at Daytona and backed into the infield fence hard enough to fold down the rear clip and ended up here.
Rusty Wallace took at wild ride in the Daytona in 1993. He repeated this at Talladega later that year
Red Farmer survived the horrific crash in 1975 at Daytona.
Four wide just doesn't work at a track like Bristol
There was nothing funny to driver Robert Pressley when he was flipping the Cartoon Network car in the 1997 Daytona 500.
Tony Stewart is upside down in the closing laps of the Daytona 500. He flipped high into the air and many cars raced under him while flipping.
Michael Waltrip takes a tumble in the 2004 rendition of the Daytona 500
Ryan Newman crashed so hard he threw the rear end out of his car in the 2003 Daytona 500
In the 1977 Daytona 500 with 10 laps to go Dale Earnhardt Sr was in second place stalking down leader Bill Elliott when he tapped the wall coming off turn two. He lost some momentum and was run into by Dale Jarrett and it sent Earnhardt's Chevy upside down in a wild ride. Earnhardt got out of the car but then ask a track safety worker to see if the car would restart. It did and Earnhardt crawled back into the badly beaten and battered car and finished the race.
Chris Buescher took a wild ride at Talladega in 2016. Austin Dillon hit the wall and in the melee Michael Annett hooked the #34 cars right rear quarter panel and sent the car flipping. He rolled three times but was not injured.
This incident ocured at Daytona as the cars entered turn three on lap 78. Jeff Green (#66) spun into the field grass and come back up across the track collecting the cars of Joe Nemechek (#01), Carl Edwards (#99) and Kyle Petty. Edwards nearly drove in Petty's window.
BELOW ARE SOME CRASH SEQUENCE PHOTOS
Dale Earnhardt Jr and Steve Park crash together at Pocono. Park had spun and came across Earnhardt's nose as they spun into the infield. Earnhardt's car pinned Parks car against the highway type guard rail, and sent him flipping. Park rolled several times before coming to a stop on it's side. Neither driver was injured.
This is a crash David Reutimann had in the closing laps at Watkins Glen. This occured in turn two as Reutimann got into the outside grass and hit the retaining wall; bouncing back into race traffic and flipped into the catch fence and down the track. Several other cars were also involved. Reutimann was uninjured but as you can see; his car was destroyed.
Sequence of crash for Michael Waltrip at Bristol in 1990. This starts just prior to impact. His car disintegrated into pieces. Waltrip crashed into the wall where the gate opens to let cars into the infield, the gate broke and he went head on into the end of the concrete wall. As you can see Waltrip's car was destroyed. This is one of the worst single car crashes in NASCAR history. Everyone who saw the crashed feared Waltrip was dead; but got only cuts and bruises. In the final picture Waltrip is still in the car as safety officials rush to his aid. The picture below shows the wall Waltrip hit in this crash
Here is a picture of the same gate at Bristol 12 years after Michael Waltrip hit it; when this time Mike Harmon had virtually the same crash. You can see how far the gate moved and the end of the wall. The car was then split in half, and the part Harmon wasn't in was struck by Johnny Sauter. In the lower left picture you can still see Harmon in the car unbuckling from his drivers seat; Harmon cheated death, and was able to stand up, step out of his car, and emerge uninjured.
