Nationwide Finish (Iowa) vs. Talladega Nights - Unbelievable Finishes

Last night's race ending at Iowa Speedway was indeed unexpected, entertaining and a moment that will go down in NASCAR history. It is always a story book ending when teammates cross the finish line in consecutive order - first and second; however, it is even more bewildering when they accomplished this task after having wrecked right before the start-finish line but still managed to cross it due to a huge hit from the rear. This happened to be the picturesque finish courtesy of Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. (#6 RickyvsTrevor Ford) and Carl Edwards (#60 Fastenal Ford).

Take a look at this:

This moment in time lead me to thinking about the fictional characters of Ricky Bobby and Jean Girard Highlander in the movie Talladega Nights. Although the finish to this race was scripted, it did not disappoint in its climatic, wild and unprecedented race ending.

Take a look at this:

Yes, I know it wasn't actually how a NASCAR sanctioned race would end but the
Stenhouse, Jr./Edwards finish was just as crazy to say the least. I am glad that both drivers were okay after the blown engine and hard hit from the rear but you will have to admit that it was an unbelievable finish.

*This post is meant to add a little satire to the dynamic finish of the Nationwide race held last night at Iowa Speedway. It is not meant in any way to be offensive or diminish what happened when the checkered flag waved. I hope you found a little comical relief and please feel free to share your thoughts with me.
