Things got a little hairy on Lap 29 at Talladega Speedway on Saturday. Kurt Busch, Brian Scott, Josh Richards, Morgan Shepherd and Jason Bowles were among the drivers involved in a minor wreck that sent several cars spinning off the the track. The accident was apparently started by Busch, the man who will be driving Ricky Bobby's "ME" car during Sunday's Aaron's 499, pushing Scott's bumper.
Looks like Ricky Bobby jacked up Brian Scott to start that chain of events. Kind of a jam-up in the middle.— Jeff Gluck (@jeff_gluck) May 5, 2012
You can check out the video, and of course a GIF, after the jump.
Apparently no one was hurt in the scrum. Dale Earnhardt Jr. apparently could have done without the rubbing, however.
Dale Jr. says he doesn't know why people would want to push at this point in the race, because it's not really necessary until the end.— Jeff Gluck (@jeff_gluck) May 5, 2012
