If it were Larry McReynolds and Darrell Waltrip doing the commentary today, that is exactly what you would have heard.  A "Big One" at Pocono?  Never before, but there sure was today.

There were only 22 laps left in the race when Denny Hamlin got a little loose in the middle of the pack, lost his rear end and spun.  The chain reaction caused a wreck the likes of only seen at Talladega and Daytona.  In the end, 14 cars were out of the race

Brad Keselowski was caught up in the wreck and finished 23rd.  He sits third in points behind Jeff Gordon and Dale Jr.  Jimmie Johnson hit the wall after a right rear tire went flat early in the race and although he was competitive in the race after that, a second hit to the wall on lap 111 knocked him out of the race for good.  He settled for 39th and sits 6th in points.

The teams head off to Watkins Glen for their second road course race in the season next weekend.

Let the comparisons begin.  

Oh and by the way, "they" have already had run-ins in IndyCar....
