NASCAR Crashes: The Biggest 25 Wrecks in History

So after plenty of deliberation and an altogether too long process of putting this together, I present to you the 25 biggest crashes in the history of NASCAR.

Keep in mind this list is one person's opinion, and I've probably missed plenty of crashes—especially from the 1970s and 1980s, before I was born and before NASCAR had really exploded in popularity. Feel free to correct me where I'm missing something.

"Biggest crash" means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Do we go strictly by car count? Carnage for the car and driver who got it worst? Effect on the way drivers raced after it happened? This list will attempt to take all three into account.

One caveat, though—out of respect for those who have lost their lives behind the wheel, there are no fatal accidents on the following list. It's not respectful to the lives of the deceased. (So, no, the Dale Earnhardt accident is not on here. Seriously, don't suggest that I add it. I don't think fatal crashes are tasteful or appropriate for something like this.)
