(#9) Kasey Kahne attempted a pass down the long straightaway on teammate (#43) A.J Allmendinger, Allmendinger blocked Kahne all the way to the grass, sending Kahne spinning up into the outside wall before being hit head on by Greg Biffle (#16), Mark Martin (#5) and Jeff Gordon (#24), launching Kahne's car into small trees surrounding the track, before bouncing back onto the track on his wheels.
All drivers were unharmed, and Pocono Raceway would build a catch fence down the back straightaway to prevent a similar incident.
