Talladega is known for being a dangerous and exciting track and didn't disappoint fans this past weekend with the Aaron's 312 on Sarturday (Nationwide) and Aaron's 499 on Sunday (Sprint Cup). While David Ragan won in an exciting finish on Sunday and Regan Smith on Saturday, it will be the crashes that people will be talking about more--like the one that Kyle Busch started on the first turn of Lap 44 when he tried to pass Kasey Khane.  In the end 13 drivers were knocked out of the race including nine of the top 14. Talk about impacting the outcome! Towards the end of the race it was Kyle's brother, Kurt, that took center stage when he ended up flipping end over end until he came to a stop on the hood of Ryan Newman. The carnage wasn't held to just Sunday. Saturday's Nationwide race had a pretty nasty crash as well.
