Edwards flips, but not in his usual way

Today's NASCAR race at Talladega was a crash-fest for the ages, from the "Big One" at lap 8 to Carl Edwards' 200mph airborne flip into Ryan Newman's car and then into the track fence. Seven fans were injured due to the 99 car's debris, but it's an absolute wonder that nobody was killed, including Carl Edwards. His totaled Ford landed 20 yards short of the finish line and he still climbed out and sprinted the length to the line, a la Ricky Bobby in (appropriately enough) "Talladega Nights."
