brad freaking keselowski (and he doesnt do the polish victory lap).

i actually had chills on the final lap even before the wreck. never seen 2 cars glued together like magnets with him and edwards making that last lap charge.

i really havent seen 2 cars hooked together like magnets like jr and newman, pull out to such a huge lead and it evaporate in the last lap.

WOW.

good job with the catch fence keeping all of edward wreck away from the crowd.

good job with the safety barriers keeping r. gordon alive.

geeod job with edwards pulling a "rickey bobby" and running across the finish line. :toofunny:

ive watched hundereds of races. this one easilly goes into my "top 10".

video?yeah.... most definitely (i record every race). this ending is even better upon replay :thumbsup:

i must give props to jeff gordon, who was more than classy in post wreck interviews. :cheers:

he has become alot more tolerable now that he has finally hit puberty and is much less whiney.

Missed it completely.

I'm sure there will be a replay on HDTV or something...

I've seen the highlights, that was freaking crazy.

At first when I heard that Keselowski's victory came shortly after a wreck, I assumed it was his fault. From what I've seen in the highlights (lowlights?), he wasn't at fault at all, the other driver moved to block a little too late.

You missed a good one - if your driver survived the Big One's - (plural)

Have to admit on that Edwards crash, the old car would have disintegrated completely...that's still amazing because the COT was designed to NOT get airborn...

Matt's flip in the Nationwide race was just as wild

That last second flip to top side had to have been a huge blessing, because I thought for sure that he was going to remain upside down.

Who Matt? Yeah - car fires are scary.

Did you see him go back in to the twisted burning wreckage and get his hat. That's cool.

Yeah, Matt. If he had continued on the concrete area with his slide, he wouldn't have turned. It was only when he hit the grass that it finally tipped the correct way.

As for the getting his hat, I was watching him head back and was thinking, WTF? Started laughing when he got his hat and put it on. Only someone with Veins of Ice does that.

It was crazy. I woke up just in time to see it.
