As hard as it is to believe, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series coming to Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In those two decades, history has been made, memories forged and traditions established. Races have been won by the biggest names in the sport, and they have been lost in unforgettable bonehead fashion by drivers and teams who knew better.
Kissing the bricks after a victory? It's a given now, but it wasn't when Jeff Gordon won the first Brickyard 400 in 1994. But a win there has always meant something more to the drivers. Asked recently where Indy ranks among the most prestigious tracks NASCAR drivers want to win at, Kyle Busch told FoxSports.com, "It's number two. It's right there. Daytona is one, Indy is two. They're both pretty close."
That's high praise. It also meant ranking the 10 most memorable moments, good and bad, wasn't easy and is sure to spark some spirited debate.
