Jensaarai: catastrophe averted: How do they assign final positions for the DNF cars? Based on their final positions on the track?

A combo of where they are when the yellow is thrown, as shown by video replay, where they come to rest on the track if they can't get refired, and a vague sense of "maintaining pace" for the cars still running that manage to cross the finish line.

I believe they use the scoring loops and any/all available video. Final official results are normally released on Tuesday.


Thanks, guys!

Was there a flamier shot? This was the bast one I saw.

What they will do is place all the Hendrick drivers first, then put everyone else in a hat and draw finishing positions.

Baby Face Fister: FiendishFellow05: Denny Hamlin: "I MEANT TO DO THAT!"

Denny did the right thing.


I was commenting on his spinning into the infield trying to avoid the wreck, not his ce strategy. And I don't disagree that his dive into the grass, while funny, was the best thing to do.

Greg Biffle is literally telling ESPN they need to show what he did, but they can't be bothered since there's no in car shot.

/facepalm

Earlier in this thread when I doubted the capacity of Talladega to out-derp the Japanes Grand Prix, I was wrong. I am sorry for doubting you, dega.

@nateryan
Jeff Gordon on if 2013 car will change Dega racing: "It's gonna be awesome! Start buying your Talladega tickets now." Devilish grin.

catastrophe averted: So how many cars were ultimately involved? Looks like at least 25


Bingo!

Jenna Fryer @JennaFryer
25 cars listed in accident

Dustin Long @dustinlong
#NASCAR is saying there were 25 cars in the last-lap crash.

I don't mind Smoke hurling his helmet at another car. It's when he hurls his car at other cars that I get nervous.

See you Saturday night!

kewlbeezer: I'd like to point out that the time is 2:22 PM Pacific Time... whoever wrote the headline was pretty much spot on.


I'll put that in the Solar Flare prediction file.

This got me curious.

Turns out that Atlanta is 14 miles closer to me than Daytona.

Never knew that...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I believe I heard one of the commentators say that only 6 cars on the lead lap actually crossed the finish line. Dunno if that's true, but it's damned funny.

He's a wizard! The only way he could make it through *that* from the position he was in when it started without his car looking more like modern sculpture is magic!

In other news, @LewisHamilton griped @JensonButton unfollowed him. Then found out Button never followed him to begin with. #F1Problems
