An 18-car crash was set off during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway on May 15, 2016 in Dover, Delaware.

The Monster had his fill Sunday. Dover International Speedway, nicknamed the Monster Mile, saw more than its share of carnage this past weekend.  It all culminated Sunday with several crashes including an 18-car pileup that forced a red flag.

The trouble began Friday during the first Sprint Cup practice. With rain in the forecast, teams tried to put down fast laps. Only three minutes in however the session was stopped when the Chevy of Danica Patrick lost a rear end exiting turn 4 and went for a fiery spin on the frontstretch.  The grease left in the car’s wake sent Tony Stewart and Jamie McMurray for spins that ended with hard crashes.

Sunday it was Jimmie Johnson who was the center of attention.
