Scenes from the Sprint Cup: Talladega

Before the Sprint Cup action gets too fired up again in Charlotte, here's a quick look back at some of the best images of a dramatic weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.

Excuse Us, We'll Just Be a Minute - A pack of Sprint Cup drivers races in tight, harrowing quarters through turn 2 at Talladega as the infield crowd looks on at the blur of speed and color.

This Will Be a Long Ride - Delana Harvick, wife of Sprint Cup driver Kevin Harvick, sits on pit road prior to the start of last Sunday's Amp Energy 500. Kevin was in position to battle for the win until a crash with 14 laps to go took him out of the race.

Demolition Derby Gone Bad - Roush Fenway Racing driver Matt Kenseth suffered race-ending damage in the crash with 14 laps to go. His crew's main concern here? Making sure the car fits in the hauler.

The New Bright Lights - Rookie driver Regan Smith gets a heavy dose of the NASCAR media after being involved with the controversial finish of Sunday's race. Smith actually beat race-winner Tony Stewart to the finish line but was penalized by NASCAR for what they deemed an illegal pass.

Whewwww - Even Tony Stewart seems a little incredulous that he took Sunday's victory after Smith's move. It also broke losing streak for Stewart as he notched his first win of the 2008 season, despite many opportunities earlier in the year marred by bad luck.
