The NCAA Tournament is underway in earnest and everybody has at least a touch of March Madness fever, which got the folks at NASCAR America wondering.
That’s where Krista Voda, A.J. Allmendinger, and Parker Kligerman come in with the latest edition of ‘NASCAR America Overtime’ as they take a look at some of the best upsets in motorsports over the last 25 years.
From Trevor Bayne winning the Daytona 500 in the NASCAR Cup Series on February 20, 2011 at the age of 20, to Alexander Rossi switching over from F1 to IndyCar and winning the Indianapolis 500 on May 29, 2016, re-live some of the biggest upsets and most celebrated moments over the last quarter-century.

“Such a massive gut punch on Saturday,” Dean Wilson wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “Just as I was gaining good momentum riding well, feeling good and chasing my first win things turned in the blink of an eye.”
With that post, Wilson announced that he will be out for the remainder of the Supercross season, which includes races at East Rutherford, N.J. and Las Vegas, Nev. An MRI earlier in the week revealed a shoulder injury. He also sustained damage to his kidney in a Lap 8 accident while he was running in the top 10.
Wilson’s injuries will not require surgery.
Wilson’s season began with a lot of promise. Earning the holeshot in the season-opening race at Anaheim, Wilson led for a time before narrowly missing the podium in fourth.
Two weeks later, Wilson finished fifth overall in the Triple Crown event of Anaheim II. Those are his only top-fives of the season.
“The tough part of this is I have been trying so hard this year to be back where I need to be trying to get a job for next year,” Wilson continued.
Next Race: East Rutherford April. 27, on NBCSN and on NBC Sports Gold
