There are few things in NASCAR more exciting than a green-white-checkered finish. Sprint Cup fans saw their first of the Gen Six era on Sunday, when Carl Edwards held off Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin and the field to win the Subway Fresh Fit 500k at Phoenix International Raceway.
But sometimes it doesn't take a two lap shootout to produce an incredible or memorable result. In fact, many of NASCAR's greatest finishes have been the result of battles that came out of one driver tracking down another in the race's final laps. These 10 finishes hold a special place in NASCAR history as classic examples of the thrill of victory and agony of defeat.
