In a Sprint Cup season that saw many long periods of caution-free racing and the suggestion of bunching up the fields with artificial yellows, some folks might be happy to know that yes, there were still a few legitimate accidents this year.

Among this year's accidents, we saw a legendary Dover backstretch pileup, a checkers-and-wreckers scenario in Phoenix and the traditional Bristol fanfare. Not only that, thanks to one Juan Montoya, even the safety vehicles got a piece of the action.
