Bobby Labonte's first response when a crash sent 20 cars spinning at Talladega Superspeedway was to ask if his brother was OK. As the race came to a close, he had no room for such sentiment.
Labonte escaped the wreck Sunday, then pulled off a delicate pass of older brother Terry with two laps remaining to win the DieHard 500 at NASCAR's fastest and arguably most dangerous track.It was a reversal of the showdown between the brothers here last fall, when Terry held off a late charge from Bobby to win for the second time at Talladega.
Unlike that race, however, this one included a fiery crash that stopped the race for 27 minutes, but fortunately resulted in no major injuries.
"When I saw it happening behind me, I started screaming in the radio, `Find out where he's at,' " Bobby Labonte said of his brother. "When I saw the rooster on his hood was still out on the track, I said `Whew,' and kept on going. Then the end came and he turned into just another driver."
