Ryan Newman (39) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. drive by Carl Edwards on the final lap. "Talladega is short for 'We're going to crash, we just don't know when,'" said Newman, the third-place finisher. "We saw (an airborne car) two times this weekend, so maybe we need to look at things that keep the car down on the ground."
Of the crash, Edwards said, "I'm glad the car didn't go up in the grandstands. I saw some fencing at one point and that made me a little bit nervous. I don't know if I could live with myself if I ended up in the grandstands."
