CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Maybe it's the full moon.
How else can you describe what has been a crazy Coca-Cola 600 with 10 caution flags and several crashes through 350 of 400 laps, and a Fox Sports TV cable rope that fell on to the track causing injuries to 10 fans and bringing racing to a halt for a half hour?
They'll be some busy repair shops this week after this smash-up derby.
Among the popular NASCAR stars out of the race Sunday night due to either accidents or car issues include Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin and last year's Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski.
Series points leader Jimmie Johnson was two laps down after he was involved in a crash with Juan Pablo Montoya. Danica Patrick also was involved in a crash and was nine laps behind.
