All Hell Broke Loose During This 18-Car Wreck at Talladega (Video)
If you’re one of those people who watches NASCAR just for the crashes, let’s hope you were tuned in Sunday as Talladega hosted an 18-car pileup that saw A.J. Allmendinger upside down, politely asking his crew to “Get me the hell back over.”
Fortunately, the wreck wasn’t especially violent, though the cars continued to speed along after they coagulated down the straightaway.
Allmendinger had been there a few times before, and, as he stated, it wasn’t his favorite result on the track.
“The safety crew was there quick,” he would later say. “I’ve flipped here a couple of times. I’ve laid on the ground enough here. So I’m not a big fan of this place.”
No drivers were injured, but plenty were knocked out of the race following body damage to their cars.
