Finally a win for Clint Bowyer. He ran out of gas while leading last month at New Hampshire and last spring at Talladega Jimmie Johnson got a push from Dale Earnhardt, Junior past Bowyer for the victory. Bowyer had to settle for second.

Yesterday at Talladega, Bowyer was pushing Jeff Burton around the track until the final turn when he pulled out and around Burton to take the lead. Burton expected Bowyer to make his move, but thought he might have made it too soon. Bowyer won it by half a car length for his fifth career victory and first this year. It’s also Bowyer’s second win in 12 starts at Talladega.

Dave Blaney with a push from Brad Keselowski finished third with Keselowski coming in fourth and Brian Vickers completing the top five.

Carl Edwards came in 11th and increased his points lead to 14 points over Matt Kenseth who moved up from third to second.

Keselowski is now third, 18 points back.

The biggest loser in the standings was Kevin Harvick. Harvick entered yesterday’s race trailing Carl Edwards by five points, but after being taken out in a wreck on lap 104, he fell from second to fifth in the standings. He’s 26 points back now.

Kyle Busch was taken out in that same crash. Busch drops to 6th and is now 40 points behind.

Four races left. Martinsville is next.
