Busch, Junior, Or The Rules: What Caused Loudon's "Big One"?

Stealing almost as much spotlight as Joey Logano’s history-making win on Sunday was an 8-car melee that occurred on lap 176 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Thus far, the blame of Loudon’s version of the “Big One” has been shared by three parties. And the suspects are:

Kyle Busch:The obvious choice. The guy took it three-wide on a restart on a track even Busch himself said is only wide enough for one car. Busch took some heat from those involved in the wreck, including Brian Vickers and Martin Truex Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr: Earnhardt really started the whole mess with one of his patented restarts. When Earnhardt missed a shift(or something like that), it bottled up the field, eventually triggering the crash. Earnhardt took some heat from the TNT announcer’s booth, particularly from Kyle Petty.

Double-File Restarts: I have no logical reason to blame the rule. However, NASCAR.com writer David Caraviello does.
