Sunday’s Busch Clash went from 65 laps of calm follow the leader racing, to absolute chaos, which included every car in the field being involved in at least one wreck. By the end of the carnage, only six cars were able to finish the race.
The calamity turned out to be compelling television, as the TV numbers are in from Sunday’s race.
