Bobby Labonte beats brother in crash-marred race

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Bobby Labonte turned the tables on brother Terry in Sunday's DieHard 500, a race slowed by the kind of wild, multicar crash that has become a Talladega Superspeedway trademark. Terry was leading a tight four-car pack as the 187th of 188 laps began on the 2.66-mile oval.
