Early crash knocks at Monster Mile out five drivers in Top 12 Story Highlights
Bowyer, Earnhardt Jr., Harvick, Hamlin and Stewart all knocked out
One driver David Coulthard visited the garage before the race





DOVER, Del.(AP)-- Tony Stewart stood with a hand on his hip, looking grim faced as his crew worked on the No. 20. Kevin Harvick folded his arms and could only watch the rest of the field speed around the track.

Both drivers were helpless in the garage after a massive wreck only 17 laps into the race at Dover International Speedway wiped out five of the top-12 cars in the points standings.

Danny Hamlin was knocked out of the race, and Stewart, Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Clint Bowyer all had their cars towed to the garage and missed laps.

"I can't really says it's anybody's fault right there," Hamlin said on Sunday. "It's just tough racing."

Kasey Kahne's car also was damaged in the accident and he finished 31st.

Elliott Sadler was turned into the wall and went spinning down the concrete track after he made contact with David Gilliland. There was no where for the other cars to go.

"We just tried to survive," Kahne said. "It's very tough to go fast when these cars are perfect and impossible if you have any type of damage to them."

The race was red flagged on lap 22. The Monster Mile became a Monster Mess.

"It was just a complete road block," Hamlin said. "I had to just choose who I was going to hit."

Stewart got the No. 20 Toyota back on the track 113 laps later and finished 41st. Harvick also returned -- without the hood and the set up entirely out of whack -- and finished 34th.

The damage continued in the points standings. Hamlin fell four spots from fourth to ninth, and Bowyer, Harvick and Stewart all dropped three spots. Kahne remained stuck in the 12th and final position to make the Chase for the Cup title.

Harvick and Stewart had their cars repaired side-by-side in the garage and Earnhardt huddled with his crew a few stalls down, the garage humming with activity like it was a qualifying day.

"It's critical any time you fall out of the race this early," said Harvick's car owner, Richard Childress.

Greg Biffle cringed when he watched the replay in the media room after the race, letting out a big "ooooh!"

Sadler said he tried to go under and pass Sam Hornish Jr. until Gilliland sped by to make it three wide. Stewart, though, took full responsibility for the wreck for driving too close to Sadler.

"When I hit him, it caused all the guys behind me to wreck," he said.

This was the second straight race Stewart was the victim of bad luck. He had victory in sight in the Coca-Cola 600 until a flat tire with three laps left cost him his shot at the victory.

"Unfortunately, adversity is our motto here at Joe Gibbs Racing," Stewart said

That reporter is not very bright. Tony was being sarcastic:

"I take 100 percent responsibility -- it's my fault for being anywhere close to Elliott [Sadler]," a frustrated Stewart said as his crew was forced to stop work when the red flag was displayed so officials could clean up the wreckage and spilt fluids. "If I'm within half a lap of him, I expect that to happen. It's my fault -- I'm the one that hit him. When I hit him it caused all the guys behind us to wreck, so it's my fault."

CONGRATS KYLE! Just goes to show you he doesnt need the best team to win, I know Hendrick is kicking himself now trading for Jr. Looks like though Kyle is on the best team now and they have their stuff together. People boo because they are jealous their guys are not winning, which isnt good sportsmanship but you get a group of bad fans everywhere. Great to see that just lights Kyles fire..the other drivers have so much money they dont care about the races..Kyle is hungry for winning and gives us a great show everytime. People are upset hes 5 seconds faster..well sorry tell the other pit crews and teams to step up..not his fault. CONGRATS AGAIN..Kyle is making racing fun to watch again!

Jr will win, Just gotta have faith, cause Jr Nation is strong and will always continue to be strong. Yes Kyle is good, but he won't stay on top for long.

I don't think Rick is kicking himself for trading for Jr. Jr is doing a good job too.

I think Jr is a great driver to and think he adds to an already great team. However I do still believe he is kicking himself for trading Kyle..maybe not for JR..but Casey. I think Kyle, Jr and Jimmie and Gordon would have made an amazing team..that and those are my favorite drivers ;oP

You're right. I think it's funny when Kyle bows. I laughed when he said DUH to the reporter on Saturday.

Kyle's driving should have all race fans glad that he is on the track.. not sure why the author of this article said the race was boring when Kyle lapped all but 4 cars,,, that right there is racing and that is why the fans are in the stands.
