Brad Keselowski was inside of Tony Stewart for fifth place when he lost grip and washed up toward Stewart. As Keselowski's car started sliding, he hit Stewart in the left rear corner and sent the 2011 champion into a slide as well.
Incredibly, they both kept their cars pointed in the right direction. Both Keselowski and Stewart lost multiple positions to the cars behind them, but they were able to avoid the fate that befell Juan Pablo Montoya and Matt Kenseth in the tunnel turn just previously. In that incident, Montoya's car washed up while on the inside of Kenseth's and both drivers went spinning, though neither one hit anything.
Stewart bounced back to finish fourth and Keselowski was 16th after working his way through the field after a late-race pit stop for tires.
