NASCAR champion Tony Stewart found himself upside-down and flying through the air on Sunday after he accidentally triggered a 25-car pileup on the last lap at the Talladega Superspeedway.

Somehow, driver Matt Kenseth ended up winning the race after narrowly avoiding the mayhem in the video below.

Even if NASCAR isn’t your thing, you’ve probably never seen this many vehicles wrecked at one time. Thankfully, nobody was injured.

The video below is from ESPN, broadcast Sunday, October 7, 2012.
