Motorsport can be a beautiful sight to behold. Mechanical beasts dancing on the edge of control, at speeds that can boggle the mind. It is something that unites motorsport fans around the globe.

It was battle royale inside the Last Great Colosseum as NASCAR’s gladiators clashed under the Saturday night lights, culminating in a dramatic fight to the finish between Matt Kenseth and Kasey Kahne.
