The esses were Sunday's hot spot for accidents at Watkins Glen.
That included a crash involving Kasey Kahne, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and others, setting up a restart with 10 laps to go.
Kenseth got into the back of Marcos Ambrose and his car subsequently wobbled. That sent him into Kasey Kahne, who was alongside of Ambrose, and sent Kahne around.
As Kahne bounced off the wall and came back across the track, he did so in front of a bunch of cars, including his teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr., who didn't have enough time or space to make an evasive maneuver and slammed into Kahne's car.
But the action wasn't done there. As other drivers behind Junior were checking up, Jeff Burton and David Ragan got spun around, leaving those at the back of the pack to snake through three sideways cars in the narrow area between the guardrails.
