Watch: The 'Big One' collects Busch, Truex, brings out red flag at Talladega
A massive crash at Talladega brought out the red flag with 17 to go in the Alabama 500.
Sixteen cars, including a number of playoff drivers, were involved in a massive crashÂ with 17 laps to go in the Alabama 500 at Talladega.Â
In restrictor-plate racing, a simple slip canÂ cause a wreckÂ as cars are separated in the draft literally by inches. That's what happenedÂ in Turn 3 at Talladega as Martin Truex Jr. was trying to create space and hit the rear of Kevin Harvick, who turn teammate Kurt Busch igniting a huge wreck that collected out playoff drivers Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Matt Kenseth and others.Â
The wreck brought out the red flag as officials cleared the 2.66 mile track withÂ Daniel Suarez in the lead.Â
Dale Earnhardt Jr., was able to come away from the wreck without any damage as he looks for his seventh Talladega in his final race at the Alabama track.Â
