Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth both angrily wondered why NASCAR did not throw a caution on the last lap Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.

Edwards was spun heading into the first turn and his Toyota slid into the grass and then back onto the track. NASCAR didn't call a caution, which Edwards said allowed other drivers to pass him at high speeds as his car was out of control.

Edwards said drivers racing past a spinning car is "the most dangerous thing in the sport right now" at superspeedways.

Kenseth said he did get out of the gas, because if he didn't, he'd have hit his teammate and "sent him to the hospital." Kenseth said he was "dumbfounded" that NASCAR didn't call a caution.
